This is an attractive book, chock-full of information, that would be useful to anyone from a teenaged student to a veteran gardener. If you love monarch butterflies or want to learn more about them, check it out!
"The Monarch" includes just enough science to fascinate without getting too "sciency." This book should find its way to a shelf in every library and classroom. If you love learning about and looking at stunning photography of nature, you'll love this book.
Those of us who love monarch butterflies are eager to share their story and to learn more about it ourselves. This book is a great way to do that. Only 160 pages long, it nevertheless covers monarchs in plenty of detail, including life cycle, migration, threats to survival, and ways to help these fascinating creatures escape extinction. This is an attractive book, chock-full of information, useful to anyone from a teenaged student to a veteran gardener. If you love monarch butterflies or want to learn more about them, check it out!
Illustrated by beautiful photos, Baumle packed this work with carefully researched facts, online resources, projects and a road map of how to join the movement to save the monarch and other butterflies that are at risk in today's world.--Nancy Szerlag
