Look inside
Laugh and learn with fun facts about caterpillars, moths, different kinds of butterflies, and more—all told in Dr. Seuss’s beloved rhyming style and starring the Cat in the Hat!

“Butterflies are surprising and beautiful things as they soar through the air on their bright-colored wings.”

The Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library series combines beloved characters, engaging rhymes, and Seussian illustrations to introduce children to non-fiction topics from the real world! Take flight with the Cat in the Hat and discover:
 
  • how butterflies see thousands of images at once
  • drink nectar from flowers using tubes (like straws!)
  • lay eggs as small as the head of a pin
  • and much more!

Perfect for story time and for the youngest readers, My, Oh My—A Butterfly! All About Butterflies also includes an index, glossary, and suggestions for further learning.
