Ill. by Lisa Stewart. Lothian Children's Books, 2017. ISBN 9780734416995
(Age: 3-6) Recommended. Written by Libby Hathorn and beautifully illustrated by Lisa Stewart, Butterfly We're Expecting You is an adventure for children as they explore backyards finding an array of creatures.
In the story a brother and sister explore the area around their house and speak to each of the creatures that they find.
With its textural front cover and illustrations expanding across whole pages, this is a delightful and gentle story that will make children get outside and explore for themselves.
