Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-4-- Young naturalists will be captivated by this succinctly written, well-organized, brightly illustrated introduction to monarch butterflies. Focusing on a single monarch, the text describes each stage of its metamorphosis, basic physical and behavioral characteristics, diet, and migratory instincts. It then discusses the migration patterns of the species in general, mentions the celebrations held in their honor along the migration route, and ends with simple instructions for raising a butterfly in a jar. (The text instructs readers to pound holes in a jar lid with a hammer and a nail--no safety warning or suggestion to obtain adult help is given.) The last page consists of additional miscellaneous facts. Clear, stylized color drawings accompany the short blocks of text on every page; each is doubly framed by white and yellow backgrounds. There are a number of titles available on the life cycles of butterflies; however, most are on a slightly higher reading level and describe different species. Gibbons' book will be a useful addition to the natural history sections of most school and public libraries. --Karey Wehner, San Francisco Public Library

This is an excellent book for children to learn about life cycles. The text and illustrations make the wonderful miracle of life come alive for the readers. Beginning with the egg and ending with the beautiful Monarch the author clearly explains the changes that take place. Information is also included about the migration patterns of these interesting creatures. The last pages explain how children can raise monarch butterflies so that they can observe this miracle of life first hand. I would highly recommend this book to teachers who teach life cycles as part of their curriculum

What a beautiful classic about these marvelous butterflies. The book was purchased for grandchildren in the 6-8 year range although it would be suitable for much younger and older readers too. The visuals are delightful. The clear organization allows the reader to follow the butterfly through its life easily. Also included are guides to raising your own butterflies. Since this beautiful book was published, new research has expanded our understanding, especially of their migrations. The book is too lovely not to check out, just remember to update with a more recent source.

Great non-fiction book. We use it to teach non-fiction writing using the Lucy Calkins Units of Study and we love it! (and all Gail Gibbons books!)

The book goes along with a second grade science standard and with our butterfly garden. It captured my students' attention and brought us to a class discussion.
