Mostly Lovely

Reviewed by Parent/Teacher

Beyond beautiful illustrations and simple but informative writing. It is just lovely and captivating. If you liked Hutt's book, A Seed is Sleepy, you will find this one delightful as well.
Of note, there is an old-earth and evolution reference on the page spread "A butterfly is not a moth!" On the second page of the spread it reads, "Moths appeared on Earth between 100 and 190 million years ago, butterflies 40 million years ago, during the Crustaceous period, when flowering plants-and the nectar most butterflies need to survive-evolved."
