Both beautiful and poetic, this book—loaded with butterflies—is a playful, bright, and eye-popping treat that will fascinate young children The butterflies in this magnificently illustrated board book come in all different colors. They are as blue as the sea, as red as a strawberry, and even as black as the night. Children will love poring over these pictures to see how the butterflies compare to the colorful words they match. And at the end, a special interactive die-cut page allows children to create their own butterfly wing patterns by placing any piece of paper or cloth behind the page.


"Simple, evocative text and exquisite illustrations make this one to savor." —Kirkus Reviews

"Ortelli's impressionistically painted butterflies seem to have casually landed alongside things that they match. All the images are set against generous stretches of white, which heightens the impact of this lovely board book." —Maria Russo,
