The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
Knopf Group E-Books, 2008
Beautiful and insightful
After seeing the movie version, I HAD to read the book. I couldn't put it down. The author tells his story in a way that will both break your heart and have you literally laughing out loud at his use of irony and sarcasm. I've read some of the more negative reviews, and my only response to their criticism is that Jean Do was only a man....not a saint...not a fictional hero...just a human being ...
National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Insects and Spiders (National Audubon Society Field ...
NATIONAL AUDUBON SOCIETY
You can always count on the National Audobon Society
This is a great book. I have the NAS bird field guide and the Mammells field guide as well. My only complaint is that I wish that they would put photos of both the male and female on each of the species. There is such a difference in looks,, and it is very hard to identify a particular species sometimes without seeing both. I have had to go online with my sons several times allready to find out ...
The Butterfly House
This book stared a bit slow but about 2-3 chapters in, I was HOOKED! I was drawn to the characters and was engrosssed in the storyline. Once I started reading, I couldn't stop. I do wish Cincy's character was elaborated on more thoroughly. There were times when she was described looking a certain way or acting a certain way but no explanation why (with the exception of the very end of the book). ...
A must for Edward fans
If you have read Laurell K Hamilton before and met her Edward character this book delves deeper into the life of this mystery man. Plus its more fun with my favorite vampire executioner.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
Board Book PERFECT Option for Babies
This is a perennial staple in the children's books collection I've amassed over the years. When my son started showing interest in being read-to, I pulled out my trusty old, paperback version of this book. BIG NO NO with a teething baby. Our local children's librarian said that it's a great idea to allow babies to explore 'reading' with all senses, including mouth. As my little guy ...
Adventures among Ants: A Global Safari with a Cast of Trillions
Mark W. Moffett
University of California Press
A Beautiful Introduction to Ants
Mark W. Moffett is one of those lucky souls who knew from childhood what he wanted to do and spent his life doing it. "My first memory is of ants," is the beginning sentence in his _Adventures Among Ants: A Global Safari with a Cast of Trillions_ (University of California Press). He was watching ants in his backyard scampering away with the breadcrumbs he had given them. I have exactly the ...
From Caterpillar to Butterfly (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science, Stage 1)
This was a present for my nephews. I gave them this along with a butterfly kit I found in here. It was such a hit!
My, Oh My--A Butterfly!: All About Butterflies (Cat in the Hat's Learning Library)
Random House Books for Young Readers
Wonderful book. Bought this to go along with a butterfly garden and explains everything so good to our little ones. I would highly recommend this. This would be a great activity for any classroom!
Fancy Nancy: Bonjour, Butterfly
Surprise! From the cover and title, you'd expect a frothy, superficial story in which a spoiled little girl is indulged in her love of glitz and finery. But, FN, Bonjour Butterfly! is actually a wholesome book with solid values, a loving family in which both parents are hands-on and committed, plus educational extras like vocabulary, science, and forming letters. Who knew? And the brilliant ...
In the Time of the Butterflies
A haunting story about the radicalization of middle class women
Julia Alvarez provides us with a haunting story about the radicalization of middle class women, caught in the web of the Trujillo's oppressive regime in the Dominican Republic in the 1940s and 50s. The novel is based on a true story, but the form of a novel allows Julia to penetrate the inner mind of what women in similar shoes might have thought and felt. She captures so beautifully the small ...
The Beekeeper's Handbook, Third Edition
Cornell University Press
This is a very complete book on bees. I recommend it fully. When I bought my hive kit (after reading the For Dummies book) this is the book they included. An excellent choice. Other vendors include other books. You can even see diagrams of the anatomy of the three bee sexes. Get the book, get some bees, manage them responsibly and protect your food supply.
Butterflies Coloring Book (Dover Coloring Book)
Excellent, excellent value as are all the Dover Coloring Books I have purchased. This and several other Dover books were Christmas presents for a 7 year old. She loves nature and the the detail on each page stimulates her imagination, questions arise leading to research - fun-filled learning experiences on Google. Great buddy project for adult and child. Also nice for stencils, projection work ...
Make Your Own Butterfly Sticker Activity Book (Dover Little Activity Books)
Great little distraction
This is a cute, though VERY small book (just about double the size of an index card). It's the perfect size to keep in your purse as a quick "something to do" while waiting for appointments, car trips, etc. The stickers aren't the super sticky type so you don't have to worry about chiseling them off of your furniture.
The Butterfly Effect: How Your Life Matters
The decisions you make and the way you treat others have more impact than you may ever realize. Speaker and New York Times best-selling author Andy Andrews shares a compelling and powerful story about a decision one man made over a hundred years ago, and the ripple effect it's had on us individually, and nationwide, today. It's a story that will inspire courage and wisdom in the decisions we make, as well as affect the way we treat ...

Pheromone: The Insect Artwork of Christopher Marley
A Closer Look at the Beauty of Nature
'Pheromones are chemical stimulants that insects release to attract one another -- and they've been known to seduce the occasional human, too.' So Christopher Marley states about the chosen title of this fascinating, challenging and very beautiful book of excellent color reproductions of his art: his art is the preservation and design of mounting insects as the objects d'art. Marley is obsessed ...

Garden Insects of North America: The Ultimate Guide to Backyard Bugs (Princeton Field Guides)
Princeton University Press
a good reference for the gardener
I had this book for about three days when a flock of bugs turned up in my back yard. I looked them up in the book; read what they eat and decided nothing needed to be done. A good book for the home gardener, who should not spread poisonous insecticides indiscriminately.
