Beautiful Butterfly Books

There’s lots of other butterfly books we like too. It was too hard just to choose nine!

Saving the Butterfly by Helen Cooper and Gill Smith

Saving the Butterfly by Helen Cooper and Gill Smith is an incredible book that tells the story of displaced refugee siblings. You can read my full review and see inside images here.

Fly, Butterfly, Fly! by Dom Conlon and Anastasia Izlesou

A beautiful new release is Fly, Butterfly, Fly! by Dom Conlon and Anastasia Izlesou. This wonderful duo make the most incredible books together. You can see my review of one of the other titles in their series here and I’ll be adding a review of this new title soon.

More Butterfly Books

A couple of the books mentioned above have a mini feature in this Bookworm Buzz. Monarch Butterflies is a stunning book.
