Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
AGERANGE: Ages 4 to 7.

Minna, Pip, and their parents visit the interactive Butterfly Place where they observe the monarch butterfly's metamorphosis. Greeted by Bert, the Butterfly Man, they examine each stage of development, even trying on a caterpillar suit to experience first-hand the process of molting. Bert takes the kids to a series of aquariums where they can see the changes taking place within the chrysalis and view a newly emerged butterfly. Party blowers help explain the function and operation of the butterfly's proboscis, and a large migration map clearly shows the monarch's route to Mexico and back. Cheerful cut-paper collages support a lively text that entertains as it teaches. There is advice for planting a butterfly garden, directions for making a monarch magnet, and a helpful list of places to visit to learn more. The crisp layout and chatty tone make this ideal for primary grade children. Reviewer: Beverley Fahey

School Library Journal

K-Gr 3

It is a late-summer day, and the Rabbit family, dressed in long sleeves and hats, are off to the Butterfly Place. There, Bert the butterfly expert guides them through the life cycle of the monarch butterfly. There's plenty of easy-to-digest information here, with scientific vocabulary such as "molting" and "chrysalis" carefully explained. The family outing is a nicely done science lesson, filled with facts and extras at the end of the book. There's even a craft included. The cut-paper illustrations are technically quite well done, but a few inconsistencies are jarring. The family's clothing does not fit the season, and on one page showing the "beautiful green jewel" of a chrysalis, the pupa is quite blue. The simple and bright images are likely to appeal to a younger crowd than the text indicates. That said, the book still contains plenty of accessible information that may be useful for collections needing more butterfly materials.-Angela J. Reynolds, Annapolis Valley Regional Library, Bridgetown, NS, Canada

Kirkus Reviews
Wallace has created another winner with her latest starring Minna and Pip. This time the rabbit family bikes to Butterfly Place, a natural outdoor habitat for monarchs designed to teach visitors about butterflies. With signs, pictures and their guide Bert's blue bag of materials, the siblings follow the life cycle of a butterfly from egg, through larva and pupa, to adult. Along the way they search the milkweed leaves for eggs, use Bert's costumes to become caterpillars and molt, see several pupae at different stages, use party blowers to simulate a butterfly's proboscis and don wings to learn about butterfly migration. Definitions and pronunciation aids abound, but do not overwhelm the story. Jokes and wordplay break up the learning, along with some simple activities to do at home. Backmatter includes more information about monarchs, instructions for planting a butterfly garden and some general resources. Wallace's trademark cut-paper artwork adds depth, texture and dimension to her illustrations, which seem to pop off the pages. With this in hand, there is no reason why any child cannot raise a monarch. (Informational picture book. 3-8)
