Back of Book:
Powerful and visually spectacular, Moth is the remarkable evolution story that captures the struggle of animal survival against the background of an evolving human world.
I received a copy of this picture book from Bloomsbury Press in exchange for an honest review.
I was absolutely captivated by this stunning lyrical story that opens readers eyes to the evolution of Moths. The story follows the Peppered Moth and the Black Moth as they live and adapt to their environments. Readers see how pollution change allowed the Peppered Moths to slowly disappear.
The text beautifully introduces readers to the concept of Natural Selection in a way that is not heavy or dry. Instead, they recognize how they can better protect their environment.
The illustrations are a perfect blend of bright colors and dark shadows. Daniel Egneus creatively portrayed the moths within their natural habitat
This is a must have for any biology or insect study.
