Monarch Butterflies

Explore the Life Journey of One of the Winged Wonders of the World

By Ann Hobbie

Illustrated by Olga Baumert

Monarchs are a favorite and familiar North American butterfly, and their incredible annual migration has captured the popular imagination for generations. As populations of monarchs decline dramatically due to habitat loss and climate change, the general public’s interest in and enthusiasm for protecting these beloved pollinators has skyrocketed. Through accessible text and colorful, engaging illustrations, Monarch Butterflies presents rich, detailed information about the monarchs’ life cycle, anatomy, and the wonders of their signature migration, as well as how to raise monarchs at home and the cultural significance of monarchs in Day of the Dead celebrations. The book broaches how human behavior has harmed monarchs and offers substantive ways for kids to help make a positive difference. Solution-oriented ideas include converting lawns into native plant gardens, citizen science efforts such as tagging migrating monarchs and participating in population counts, and supporting organizations that work to conserve butterflies.
