Overview

Butterflies are beautiful, fascinating, and in trouble. What can a school class do to help? They can build a butterfly garden at their school. Told in fun rhyme, with a refrain of a question and answer, an elementary school class learns about butterflies and their habitat at a local butterfly pavilion. When the class discovers that butterflies need help, they build a butterfly garden at their school. As the butterflies come to the BUTTERFLY INN, the children watch the life cycle of the butterfly from hungry caterpillars through metamorphosis into adults.

With lovely illustrations, Nancy Derey Riley shows what children can do to help butterflies and other pollinators. Nancy's niece, Jennifer Martinez, an elementary school music teacher, turned the story into a song and the book is complete with sheet music and guitar chords. You will be flitting like a butterfly after you learn it. Plus, there are plenty of butterfly facts and gardening tips for eager readers, budding entomologists, teachers, and caregivers.
