The first butterfly of the year has been spotted in our town, but we haven’t been quite so lucky yet. Bees and wasps, yes. And spiders, lots of spiders, even one that dropped off the ceiling the night before last and landed with a loud tap beside my head. Needless to say I haven’t slept well the past two nights. But butterflies are beautiful, and have such an amazing transformation. Today I’m sharing some books about butterflies that will show you how it’s done, how to raise them, colour them, and fold them with origami. Enjoy!
