Format: Paperback
Children love learning about the insects that share our world. And now that Spring is here somewhat early, the insects are busier than ever. If you have a garden full of beautiful flowers, you will soon see butterflies everywhere. Butterflies love flowers. This wonderful story will introduce young readers to the life of a monarch butterfly. Everything you would want to know is right here on these pages.

Sarah Reynolds and her mom have a beautiful garden. It is free of pesticides that would be harmful to the plants and butterflies. Sarah's garden has a very special plant called a milkweed. Sarah learns from her mother that monarch butterflies lay their eggs on milkweed so that baby caterpillars will have food once they hatch from eggs. The babies eat the milkweed leaves. Sarah learns a lot from her mom about the monarch butterfly. Did you know that another name for a caterpillar is larva? Did you know that a butterfly pupa has a protective shell called a chrysalis? There is lots more for young readers to learn about this amazing insect.

Ryall has done an excellent job of sharing her passion for butterflies. She has woven interesting facts about the monarch in an easy to read, colorfully illustrated book. Young readers, parents and teachers will have fun learning about the monarch. Young readers will be anxious to visit their own back yards on a search for the monarch butterfly.

About the author:
Mary Ellen Ryall grew up in Saratoga Springs, New York. In pursuit of butterflies, she worked and traveled in south America in the 1970s. In the 1980s Ryall completed the Master Gardeners Program, University of the District of Columbia, and became involved with community gardens. Living in Southern Maryland in the 1990s, she wrote about the environment and founded Happy Tonics. In 2006 Ryall relocated the organization to Shell Lake, Wisconsin where she spearheaded the implementation of a Monarch Butterfly Habitat.

The little butterfly book is just darling. The text is smooth, informative and easy to comprehend. The illustrations are so sweet and the colors really pop. Ronnie Hohos, Fitchburg, MA

Thank you for the opportunity to own your sweet, informative butterfly book. Gloria Thue, Spooner, WI

Thank you for the lovely words! It means a lot to me that you like my artwork and I'm honored to be a part of your book. I started it while pregnant and finished it with my daughter sleeping in the next room so the butterfly will always have a special meaning for me now. I think what you're doing is wonderful and I'm glad you can touch the world with your words and help people appreciate such beautiful creatures.

An autobiography from the perspective of a butterfly named Mariposa, "My Name is Butterfly" by Mary Ellen Ryall is a lovely story about patience, preservation, and appreciating the beauty all around us.

A little girl named Sarah sees a Monarch butterfly lay an egg, then watches it grow, and eventually gives it its name before the butterfly flies off for Mexico. What I liked most about this story is it gave so much factual information about butterflies, while still feeling completely like a story and not a text book. The simple illustrations and clean layout make the book easy to read.

One of the first steps to helping our children learn to care for the world around them is to help them understand how beautiful and delicate it really is. This book definitely accomplishes that.

Book for Children Ages: 3 to 7 years old

Reading Tips:

Take time to help your child identify the different things in the illustrations while reading, and explain words that might be new to them.

It is fun for children to learn new words, so don't just explain the meanings, but also encourage them to repeat the words a few time so that can practice pronunciation as well.

Related Discussion Questions:

What other animals can you think of that lay eggs?

What is your favorite animal?

Have you ever watched an animal grow? What did you learn?

Can you think of other animals that migrate? What do animals do during the winter that don't migrate?

How can we protect butterflies, bees, and other important insects that help plants grow and the earth be healthy?

Activities for Kids:

Make a butterfly mobile. Color butterflies on craft foam or cardstock.
