Moths and butterflies both start as caterpillars, but they are much more different than you might think! Moths are more active at night and butterflies are more active during the day. Moths have thicker bodies and feathery antennae; butterflies have larger wings and brighter colors.
At some point, every child asks what makes butterflies and moths different. Now you can understand and teach your child the difference between them. This book has wonderful photographs on every page that show many different kinds of butterflies and moths. It is perfect for very young kids and has easy reading material. The end of the book includes two activities that teach readers how to make a finger puppet moth and a finger puppet butterfly. Using all of the characteristics you learned in the book to make them, these activities are an excellent way to help kids remember what they learned.
