HASH(0x95dbdb34) von 5 Sternen Art, History, and Science in one beautiful book 3. Mai 2010
Von Ellen G. Olinger - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is an outstanding book in every way. "The true story of a girl who broke new ground as a scientist and an artist!"

Margarita Engle's writing and the pictures by Julie Paschkis combine so well to tell the story of Maria Merian, who I learned was born in Germany (1647).

I studied and worked in education for 20 years and had the privilege of teaching students from the early childhood level to grandparents. In my opinion, this book will appeal to all. As I watch butterflies from now on, I will think of "Summer Birds." My mother was German, so I also felt a personal connection. Wonderful book!

HASH(0x95dbdd80) von 5 Sternen This is a stunning portrait of a young girl, Maria Sibylla Merian ... 8. Mai 2010
Von Deb - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Beautiful butterflies flitted from flower to flower sipping the nectar. Maria was thirteen-years-old and carefully watched them as they flew through the air and went about their work. People called them "summer birds" and felt they were "beasts of the devil" because they sprang from the muds of the earth. It was a sort of magic because in that day and age everyone believed in shape shifting and werewolves, but Maria knew differently. She carefully captured beetles, summer birds, and dragonflies so she could study them and learn their ways. It had to be a secret venture because she would be accused of witchcraft if anyone caught wind of what she was doing.

She kept them in boxes and jars, fed them, and watched them grow. It was a secret, but she would soon discover the secrets these so called "beasts of the devil" held. She learned that "caterpillars are born from eggs laid by summer birds," that they ate leaves, later spun cocoons, and finally turned into those marvelous summer birds. They slowly emerged from their cocoons and once again she watched their life cycle. No, they were far from evil and were "not born from mud," but would anyone believe her? She began to study them in earnest, paint them, and continued to learn. Perhaps one day she could make people understand.

This is a stunning portrait of a young girl, Maria Sibylla Merian, who made the world realize that insects and summer birds were not evil. The presentation of this book was fascinating and young people will be able to learn about the life cycle of the butterfly in a very painless manner. Of course they will also learn about Maria Sibylla Merian, a young woman whose curiosity took her around the world in her quest for knowledge. The artwork is simply stunning and I was especially impressed with one two-page spread with an assortment of insects, "summer birds," and Maria sporting a set of wings against a black background. In the back of the book is a brief, but interesting look at the life of Maria.

HASH(0x95dbe054) von 5 Sternen The story of butterflies 12. März 2011
Von Madigan McGillicuddy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is an inspiring story about a young female scientist, Maria Sibylla Merian, who in the 1600's overturned years of medieval thought about the origin of butterflies, then known as `summer birds.' Through simple observation she discovered the process of metamorphosis from caterpillar to butterfly. This is a fantastic introduction to a little-known, but very influential early modern scientist. Beautiful painted illustrations inspired by medieval woodcuts in bright, rich colors are paired with an appealing, easy to understand text. "Today as a result of [her] careful studies, we know that butterflies, moths and frogs do not spring from mud. We also know that they are not evil, but natural and amazing." This attractive volume deserves a place in every library. I highly recommend this book!
