    From egg to hungry caterpillar, to beautiful, fluttery butterfly, this picture book with exciting flaps tells the amazing story of a butterfly's life. With friendly, read-aloud text, sturdy board book pages, and surprise flaps to lift, it's the perfect life cycle book for young children, and follows on from the award-winning title, RHS I Can Grow a Sunflower. Published in association with the RHS, this fun nature book will entertain and educate preschoolers. They'll love finding out about each life cycle stage, as they follow the pictures, lift the flaps, and listen to the friendly text. Beautifully illustrated, the book starts by showing all sorts of colourful butterflies. Then through the story of a swallowtail, children learn how a butterfly grows. Close-up photos show the mummy swallowtail laying her eggs, the tiny caterpillar hatching and growing, and the pretty butterfly emerging from its chrysalis. The fully grown swallowtail's brightly patterned wings lift up from the page as fluttery flaps, and more flaps reveal four other incredible caterpillar transformations. As well as the butterfly life cycle, the book includes interesting butterfly facts, such as how they spread pollen, how they are similar and different to moths, and how they need places where there are lots of flowers for them to feed on. Perfect for reading aloud, and with stage-by-stage pictures that tell the story, every page is easy to follow, and the combination of exciting photos and charming artwork will hold the interest of the very young. With a fun approach to life cycle science for young learners, RHS How Does a Butterfly Grow? is an informative picture book to share and enjoy. It makes a great educational gift.
