I purchased this book for my daughters who are teachers. They teach the life cycle of the monarch butterfly and this book is a dream for teaching. The pictures are beautiful and the story is easy to understand. I even learned things from it.
This is a gorgeously-illustrated book about the monarch butterfly (my preschooler's favorite of all the butterflies) and is well-researched. It details the delicate monarch's relationship with the milkweed plant, which not only provides a laying spot for the monarch's eggs, but also food for the caterpillars, and protection for the chrysalis. Once the metamorphosis is complete, a butterfly emerges, and flies away, and the milkweed's seeds also take flight, seeking new homes and so the cycle of life begins again. This is an amazing children's book, not just for its beautiful illustrations, but also for its educational value. A definite must-have in school libraries and recommended for home libraries.
This is simply a lovely book about monarchs and their journey through life. The illustrations are beautiful and children will be enthralled. Its a great book for reading at home and also wonderful for use in the classroom. I give butterfly talks to elementary school classes and use this book in parts of my talk. The kids love it.
A delightful book for adults as well as for children . Suitable for gardeners to encourage the right plantings that will attract the monarchs. The illustrations are superb. Any butterfly official ado should like to own this book
