Quiet as a Butterfly
I Wonder Why (F-3)
From a clock's tick in the morning to a father's snores at night, sounds are everywhere. That's what an attentive boy discovers as he listens his way through a school day. He perceives that sounds can be loud or soft and low or high. And sometimes, he notices that things like butterflies and wiggling worms are so quiet, he can't hear them at all. The point of this gentle book is not to explain how your sense of hearing works; rather, it aims to sharpen your awareness of all you can hear ... and all you can learn when you listen.
Quiet as a Butterfly is part of the I Wonder Why series, written to ignite the curiosity of children while encouraging them to become avid readers. These books explore the marvels of the sense of hearing, sight, smell and related phenomena. Included in each volume is a Parent/Teacher Handbook with coordinating activities. The I Wonder Why series is written by award-winning science educators.
