The Best Butterfly Books for Kids & Free Printable
This blog uses affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.
We are starting to see butterflies in our yard again now that we have some flowers blooming, and we thought we’d celebrate by sharing our favorite butterfly books for kids. If you’ve never ‘hatched’ your own butterflies, it is a wonderful learning experience. My kids have done this several times with caterpillars we ordered online, and with luna moth cocoons my mom found on a tree. Watching and waiting and then releasing these beauties was such a fun hands-on way to experience science.
Our free printable pack extends the science lesson across the curriculum to language arts, with some fun activities to try after reading a few books about butterflies. Head to the library and check some of these out with our free library checklist. If you have a favorite butterfly book to add to our list, please share it in the comments. We’d love to hear from you!
