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
Copyright 1989 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the School & Library Binding edition.

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!)

I like this book because you can learn things about butterflys that you did not know before. You can also tell other people about it to. The pictures are very nice and pretty.

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.

This is a good book for the 8 and under crowd. It isn't too hard, it's beautifully illustrated, and it clearly explains the lifecycle of the monarch butterfly. Perfect for my daughter, who will be studying Monarch Butterflies in depth in first grade next year.

It was the reading project for my daughter's school during summer, very informative and easy to understand.
After reading the book, you can let your child(ren) make their own butterfly with any kind of items. My daughter loved it.

My 6 year old grandson loved this as a birthday gift. He is quite interested in the life cycle of the Monarch as he has watched them in my backyard. Now, his family is embarking on the same miraculous journey in their backyard. This is a great informative book in simple terms.
