In this fact-filled rhyming story book, author Cathie Moog shares her insights and photographs of the majestic Monarch butterfly.
Beginning with a series of tips, readers embark on a journey through photos and a rhyming story that is chock-full of information about the lifecycle of Monarch butterflies.

The intelligent backmatter includes kid-friendly fun facts (Did you know that butterflies smell through their feet?), the parts of a butterfly, a description of the mysterious Monarch migration, and a glossary of terms—not to mention a list of additional online references and resources. There’s also a link for readers to receive free milkwood seeds to help save the Monarchs.
