MONARCH BUDDIES Munch-A-Bunch of Milkweed is a dynamic educational tool and children’s story that delivers full color photos, scientific facts and the complete monarch life cycle. Milkweed is NOT just another weed - it is the host plant for the “munching machine” monarch caterpillars! The story celebrates the caterpillar antics of “buddies” Max and Maisy, inspired by their mentor, Montgomery, as they share friendship and life cycle change. Soon they will have WINGS ... Beautiful WINGS! They GLIDE and SOAR to the skies, but the ending leaves them with a lasting impression of man’s effect upon the environment. Hopefully, this story will be a constant reminder of the importance of Milkweed. The monarch’s future is in our hands!
