Not a Butterfly Alphabet Book
Author Jerry Pallotta
Illustrated by Shennen Bersani
Age range: 3-8
“It’s about time moths had their own book.” So says Jerry Pallotta in his new book Not a Butterfly Alphabet Book. Explore moths from every corner of the alphabet and be entertained while learning that the Atlas Moth is the largest moth in the world, explore what a Diamond Moth looks like, but do not under any circumstance kiss a Green Lips Moth. Bersani’s illustrations capture a beauty that will make you think twice with the hope of changing your conception of how beautiful moths can be. With each moth kids will learn fascinating facts: there are no baby moths, “when a moth comes out of its cocoon, it is already an adult.” Or, butterflies fly during the day-moths, however, are nocturnal.
