Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sylvia Firth
The author and illustrator team for this book, part of the series titled "Amazing Science: Life Cycles," have put together a most valuable volume for teaching beginning science and for children's reports. The text and digital pictures are clear and concise. They present the four stages in the life of monarch butterflies. These are: egg; larva; pupa; and adult butterfly. Every other page contains sidebars that provide extra details such as the meaning of metamorphosis; how a pupa turns into liquid form and the location of the proboscis as well as how it is used. Helpful supplementary information is found at the end of the book. Included are: a glossary; a life cycle chart; a list called "Fun Facts;" a bibliography; and websites available through FactHound. The publisher's staff has screened the websites. Purchase of this volume is recommended, as it will be a valuable tool in the primary curriculum. Reviewer: Sylvia Firth
