I bought this as a present for a friend's newborn baby after I had seen it at my daughter's nursery. The pages are simple and clear; each page is a different colour, and the colours are really bright and beautful. I think this book is perfect for newborns upward as it is visually stimulating and interesting to look at, and then as children get older and are able to count, I think they would still find it fun as they can count the missing butterflies. I would definitely recommend this book to keep or as a little gift. Only thing to be aware of - there is another copy of this book which is bigger, so make sure you are buying the right one - I was expecting the other one and this is quite small. (That's not a criticism of the book, as I actually think this is a better size for tiny hands - it's just that it wasn't what I was expecting!)

I thought this was an excellent book for many reasons. Both my 2 and 4 year old daughters love it. The book focuses on saying good night to different coloured butterflies, all of which you can touch on each page as you say good night. The pages are extremely colourful and the butterflies are sparkly which captures the readers attention. Near the end of the book you can see all the butterflies sleeping before they wake for another day of play! Good book for learning and appreciating colours. Excellent quality illustrations and sturdy book.

I have only recently discovered this book and it is fabulous for very young children!! The colours are bright and vivacious and offer the chance to develop counting skills and colour recognition in pre-schoolers. I think it is a definite must have for young children!!

HASH(0x9e61872c) out of 5 stars KIDS LOVE BUTTERFLIES! 16 Mar. 2003
By Laurie - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Ever since I read j.singh's The Butterfly to my kids they've been obsessed with caterpillars and butterflies and just about the entire insect kingdom. So, undoubtedly, I've been cajoled into buying pretty much every butterfly book on the market (i plan to bill Singh!). Now having read all these books I consider myself a sorta self-proclaimed authority whose mission is to save parents time and money. And so here are the winners according to me and my two wonderful children. The gold medal goes to GOOD NIGHT SWEET BUTTERFLIES (for the illustrations color and content); the silver medal to FROM BUTTERFLY TO CATERPILLAR (for content and pictures); and the bronze to WAITING FOR WINGS (for content). There are plenty of others but these are a good place to start. Hope I've been helpful.

HASH(0xa739f414) out of 5 stars My Daughter's New Favorite 21 Feb. 2003
By NYCPickyMom - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book is absolutely beautiful. A brilliant bedtime story with vibrant colors and gorgeous illustrations. Each page teaches a different color and the illustrations boldly burst with that color. ..., is how the book starts off and we are then led all around this color dreamland. ...The butterflies in the book are popped out and sparkly. As we turn each page the color butterfly we are reading about disappears. Each page mentions the color twice and an animal. The last page reunites all the butterflies and the colorful animals as we say goodnight...My daughter loved this book since she was 4 months old. The colorful illustrations keep her interested and she likes to grab at the popped up butterflies. A delightful story I enjoy reading again and again. I sometimes even read it to myself. The purple page is MY favorite.

HASH(0x9f5a2d50) out of 5 stars Another Hit 19 Aug. 2003
By E. Suter - Published on
Format: Hardcover
My daughter loved 10 Little Lady Bugs so much I purchased this book for her as well. It took her a couple of reads to get into it, but she soon fell in love. It is now read as often and the Lady Bug book. The story is short, simple and fun to read, although when tired the last couple of pages can be a bit of a tongue twister for mom. It is an excellent story to teach color giving it a good educational value and the nice thing is it is a good bedtime story. It is very calm and relaxing so we now alternate this book with Goodnight Moon, which I was tired of reading. Really a very good choice for a toddler book. Note however, this is not a board book and the pages while thick are easily torn.

HASH(0xa73a4810) out of 5 stars Just okay... 21 Feb. 2003
By Nikki Thomas - Published on
Format: Hardcover
My 19 month old daughter's favorite book it the Ten Little Ladybugs, so when I saw that this book was created by the same people I grab it without taking time to really read it. Little did I know, the author and the illustrator are not the same. The book kept my daughter's attention but it does not have the same rhyming sceme as the first book. After paying closer atteniton I realized it says that the book is by the "creators" of Ten Little Ladybugs not the same author.

HASH(0xa73a49c0) out of 5 stars I highly recommend this cute book! 17 Mar. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I purchased this book for my 2-year-old niece who was going to be spending a week at my house while her parents were on holiday. She LOVED this book and asked me to read it again and again! She absolutely adored the bright, sparkly butterflies and the vibrant pages. I loved it because it not only relaxed her and helped me put her to bed, but also taught her colors (as each page is themed with a different color). All in all a great little book!
