More About This Book

The beautiful photography and whimsical story, told from the point of view of a butterfly, will engage readers in the monarch’s big change—from a teeny-tiny egg to a gorgeous nectar-drinking butterfly.

This book is great for teachers, parents, kids, and monarch butterfly lovers.

It’s also a great book for anyone going through big changes who needs to be reminded that after the scary chrysalis come the beautiful wings!

The book’s resources and action points are suitable for teachers, parents, and children to become actively engaged in protecting the monarch butterfly population at home or at school.

For example, if you’re a butterfly lover or nature activist, you’ll learn how to attract monarchs to your own backyard, which will be loads of fun to see and help the endangered monarch butterfly population.

Although I Am a Butterfly is perfect for elementary age children, even “big kids” (that’s code for grown-ups) will enjoy this butterfly’s powerful story of courage in the face of change.

So whether you’re teaching kids about metamorphosis, or you’re a kid or adult who loves monarchs and the wonders of nature, or you’re simply finding your way through one of life’s big changes or challenges, a butterfly can show the way.

Bella’s story includes:

  • Beautiful photos of each stage of metamorphosis
  • Ideas to attract monarchs to your school or backyard
  • Resources to protect monarch butterflies
  • Internet links for butterfly research
  • A life cycle diagram
  • Fun facts about butterflies
  • Opportunities to discuss life skills of courage, differences, and friendship
