The Scoop on Children & Adolescent Literature

Nic Bishop Butterflies and Moths by Nic Bishop

Posted by caribookscoops on December 7, 2009

We are big fans of Nic Bishop in our house and here at Bookscoops as my sister and I reviewed Nic Bishop Spiders for our Double Scoop in March and I reviewed Nic Bishop Frogs, which is my favorite, the month before. I highly recommend both of those other books. I finally got a copy of Butterflies and Moth meaning we actually purchased this one. My daughter loved the photographs and learning about butterflies. Although I don’t necessarily agree with her about the picture (shown 45 times it’s actual size)  of the newly hatched caterpillar/larvae looking creature – she thought is was adorable. I should have guessed she would think that because after all I did tell her it was a baby caterpillar. To me it’s larvae and it gives me the creeps. That said though it is a lovely book with not only fascinated pictures, but fascinating text to keep the reader engaged.

Another favorite picture is of a caterpillar that resembles a snake. We spent several minutes on that page. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a high quality book about such beautiful creatures and butterflies and moths.

  1. [...] Bookscoops reports at their household a top favorite is Butterflies and Moths by Nic Bishop.  I loved the way the mother thought some things were creepy while the young daughter felt the same item was just adorable!   I have chosen to share with you a treasure of a book I recently discovered that I know can be enjoyed as one friend put it “by children 8 – 80″ which is saying a lot for an “alphabet book.”  But Lights on Broadway:  A Theatrical Tour from A to Z is a wonderful trip through the theatre district from what else, but yes, A to Z!  Written by Harriet Ziefert and illustrated by Elliot Kreloff there are additional comments by Brian Stokes Mitchell, winner of the Tony Award for Kiss Me Kate.  Published in 2009 by Blue Apple Books, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book benefits The Actors Fund.  [...]

  2. I have been trying to get my hands on this one! What’s up with the taking forever to get it in??

    FINALLY they have it and it’s on hold….

    And apparently now he has one on marsupials… cool.

    (PS, what’s up with the comment subscription thing? It wants me to have a wordpress account… so I haven’t been able to figure out how to subscribe without getting one…)

    The Nic Bishop Butterflies and Moths book is one of our favorites too. But we love caterpillars, which you can tell by our silkworm project
    (Don’t go if you are squeamish about insect close-ups). :-)

  5. Britt – I hate it when it takes a while to get a book in from the library. I’m not sure what’s up with the subscription thing. Are you trying to subscribe in the RSS feed or are you clicking on the subscribe through email? If you tell me more specifically then I will investigate.

    AZ – Glad to know it’s Nic Bishop well liked in your in your house. He definitely is in ours.

    Roberta – I’ll have to check out your silkworm project. I can handle frogs, snakes and spiders better then larvae.
