Butterflies: Exploring the Life Cycle by Dr. Shirley Raines - OPTIONAL

Raines, Shirley Butterflies: Exploring the Life Cycle, 20 pages.  NON-FICTION. Flower Pot Press , 2017.  $10.

This is a free verse informational poetry book. Students read a short poems, about topics such as: Metamorphosis, caterpillars, wings, and more. Each is accompanied by a box of information on that topic and large color photograph. Includes a story stretcher section and a glossary.

This is a unique pairing that is simple enough to read with a kindergarten class. The images are bright, modern and large –easy to share with a group. That being said, a poetry format is not my favorite by any stretch and I personally wouldn’t add this to my library –as I prefer either a story or just plain non-fiction.
