On the leaf of a milkweed plant in Maine, a butterfly lays a minuscule egg. Soon a caterpillar hatches, and before long a new butterfly flutters in the breeze. Within its lifetime, this tiny monarch will fly more than two thousand miles on a mysterious migration to a warm winter haven. “Vibrant description melds with fascinating full-color photographs.”

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara Youngblood
This is a beautiful addition to the books for children about the lovely monarch butterfly. The information is presented in a very entertaining way and covers a large area of North America from Maine to California to Mexico. The author has included many interesting facts about the life of these insects, and she also describes the efforts of several people and communities to help preserve them for future generations. The photographs are abundant and show all stages of the monarch's life. They also show children involved in monarch studies and conservation.
