What is a butterfly s life? It s full of twists and turns as butterfly glide on air currents. It s full of dips and dives as they show off for their mates. There are more than 17,000 kinds of butterflies in the world. Some of them will only live for a few days. Others will migrate thousands of miles to winter in a warmer climate. Still others will hibernate through the cold months. For all butterflies, life begins with etamorphosis. In one of nature s most amazing feats, caterpillars become creatures of beauty and grace. Filled with winsome illustrations and a delightful design that looks like an artist s sketchbook, this is an inspiring companion to "It s a Hummingbird s Life".
