What better way to learn about a butterfly’s life cycle than a colorfully illustrated beautifully told story by Lois Ehlert?  Waiting for Wings takes readers into the garden to the unfolding of a butterfly’s wings.  This large book with much of the story told on smaller pages that become the foreground of a beautiful butterfly garden will fascinate and captivate readers.   Follow the eggs from caterpillars to chrysalises to butterflies in this poetic informative picture book.  Find a colorful detailed graphic of four common butterflies at the end of the story, as well as a labeled butterfly diagram and flower identification diagram.
