After a little saves a caterpillar from a hungry Blue Jay, she finds out that it will become a butterfly. This is very exciting for this little girl. Her and Grandpa work together to make a caterpillar house and give the larva a safe place to live and mature. After the caterpillar matures in to a beautiful butterfly they release it back into nature. I love this story. The girl and her grandfather have a lovely relationship. The book includes the instructions to How to Raise a Butterfly like this girl did. This would be great to do with students, fun science project. ( )

During this process, she is helped by her grandfather who tells her how he once saved a larva and helped it turn into a butterfly. The little girl realizes that her grandfather was once her age and they have things in common. The girl grows into a woman, and continues to live in the house of her grandfather. She keeps a garden that attracts the butterflies to her house. ( )

A little girl raises a butterfly from a caterpillar; when she becomes an adult, butterflies return to visit her garden. This book takes children through the life cycle from the butterfly, from the larval stage until it hatches. There is also a guide at the very end detailing how to raise a butterfly, making this a good read for children who are interested in nature, and who are old enough to take on projects. ( )
