Beautiful and full of information. This book is incredibly realistic. That is wonderful! This book follows a Monarch butterfly through it's lifespan. There are lots of really large words and scientific drawings of Monarch Butterflies and their lifespans. I believe this picture book to intended for third graders.

This book is about the complete life cycle of butterflies.

I enjoyed this book because of the order of events that the author uses, and also the language that the author uses. The author makes this informational text tell a timeline of events of a monarch butterflies life, this makes the book more personal and interesting to read. She also uses descriptive language to make the book more interesting. For example, the introductory page says, "It's summertime in the north. A breeze stirs the stem of the milkweed plant. The monarch egg is white and shiny." This gives the reader a visual, which is helpful for informational text. The purpose of this book is to inform. ( )

This is a beautifully illustrated book that takes the reader through the growth cycle of a monarch butterfly. This would be a perfect accompaniment to a science section about life cycles.
