Learn about the whole life cycle of the monarch butterfly in this toddler friendly board book edition of the bestselling picture book by Gail Gibbons!
Monarch butterflies start as tiny eggs on milkweed plants, but through metamorphosis transform into the cute yellow-striped caterpillar and eventually the iconic orange butterfly. They migrate across the continent in huge orange clouds every year.
With simple text and bright illustrations, toddlers can learn everything about monarchs, their lifecycle, what they eat, and how far they can fly. Clearly labeled diagrams introduce young readers to science vocabulary. Perfect for the little toddler who loves finding insects in the park.
According to the Washington Post, Gail Gibbons "has taught more preschoolers and early readers about the world than any other children's writer-illustrator." The multi award-winning Gail Gibbons is the author of more than 100 books for young readers, including the best-selling titles From Seed to Plant and Monarch Butterfly. Her many honors include the Regina Medal, the Washington Post/Children's Book Guild Nonfiction Award, and the NSTA Outstanding Science Trade Book Award.
