Beautiful illustrations will attract children to Save the Butterflies while the story will keep them entertained. Save the Butterflies is another wonderful book by author/illustrator Bethany Stahl. Children will like the butterflies, flowers, and illustrations in the book, while their parents and teachers will like the subtle education about another insect on the verge of extinction. School libraries, public libraries, and even homes will benefit from having this book. Teachers will enjoy reading this book to students to showcase the beauty of the butterflies, explain the insect’s lifecycle, and demonstrate ways they can help the insects of special concern. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all schools planted milkweed and nectar-rich flowers? Save the Butterflies is a wonderful story about a dad and his daughter planting milkweed and flowers that will help monarchs and other butterflies.

I couldn’t wait to read Bethany Stahl’s newest book Save the Butterflies. Like the other books in the Save the Earth series of books, she showcases an insect, animal, or earth, explains its demise, and shares ways that we can help to change their future. Children will love the illustrations, while parents will like the social responsibilities that are introduced. This is a great story, which can be read alone or with a parent. I love the stylized, outlined flowers and milkweed—a very different technique. At the back of the book, the butterflies are identified so you can watch for them. Teachers and parents will love the questions at the back of the book. How can you help monarchs and other butterflies that are becoming extinct? Plant at least one milkweed plant and one nectar-rich flower in a garden or a pot, and stop using insecticides. That’s all you have to do.
