I loved my i-spy books during the 1980s and so immediately was drawn to this title. It is even more appealing than I remembered and my daughter thinks it's beautiful to look at. There are so many wonderfully detailed photographs of the wide range of butterflies and moths found in the British Isles, with interesting information to learn a little more about them as you spot. The size makes it perfect to pop in a pocket when out and about and we loved being able to download a certificate (and send off for a badge) upon completion of the challenge.

This is a great pocket guide for any wildlife enthusiast. Both my son and daughter enjoyed taking it with us on our nature walk. Once they spotted a caterpillar, they were excited to consult their wee book to find out more about it. You can earn points for spotting the different creatures. We shall be taking it out again with us the next time we go too. Lots of fun!

My son loved when he saw this book! He's crazy about butterflies. We enjoyed reading through the various sections of the book: caterpillars, butterflies and moths, and learning more about them and seeing how beautiful they all are. Then my son was desperate to spot some of the butterflies and moths and to get his certificate, but I noticed this wouldn't be an easy task, since it's quite difficult to spot so many different butterflies. You need to get to 1000 points for the certificate and the most common ones are just 5-10 points, but the book does have more than 2000 points worth of butterflies/moths to spot (rare butterflies/moths are worth more points). 

At the moment the weather isn't that great and my son really wanted to spot things and mark them in his little I-Spy book, so we decided to try and spot the butterflies and moths in the Natural History Gallery in Nottingham. Even with the butterflies/moths not moving, we had a difficult time to recognize exactly which butterfly/moth we were seeing to mark it in the book, since they aren't organized by colour or even some of them appear only with the wings closed, and then they look a bit similar. I imagine a similar problem might happen when spotting them in the wild, where we only have a quick glimpse of the butterfly, but we'll definitely try to get to see more of them! We have over 300 points now, so lots of time left until we get to our points needed for the certificate/badge. 

This book got the entire family involved and everyone was giving opinions on which butterfly we were seeing, so this is definitely not a pocket book only for kids, but also for adults.

This is a simple but informative and truly beautiful book. The pictures are stunning and the descriptions are fascinating. I took the book on holiday with me and went walking around the park in the hopes of spotting some of the beautiful butterflies and moths detailed here.

I really enjoyed learning about such delicate and fascinating creatures and i loved that when i've racked up enough points i can send off for a certificate.

This is a great little book, pocket sized so great for taking out and about. My son has thoroughly enjoyed watching butterflies and finding them in this book, them ticking them off. Each one is given a different score depending on rarity which my son finds a great challenge. We will definitely be looking for more I-spy books.

This is a simple yet informative book which turns butterfly hunting into a game.  As you find each butterfly you collect points depending on how common or rare they are to find.  A nice small pocket book easy to carry with you when out and about.  Looking to get more books in the series to keep children occupied when out and about and on holiday.
