In this board book by Jerry Pallotta, award-winning author of several alphabet and counting books for young children, readers will learn how to count to ten while learning the colors of the rainbow—plus some fun patterns as a bonus. Shennen Bersani’s realistic and colorful art depicts ten real butterfly species, both common and rare, from around the world.

BUTTERFLY COLORS AND COUNTING is a perfect companion to Pallotta’s three previous board books, THE ICKY BUG COUNTING BOARD BOOK, THE ICKY BUG ALPHABET BOARD BOOK, and THE OCEAN ALPHABET BOARD BOOK. Little hands will enjoy browsing this book on their own—and learning their colors and numbers along the way.
