Description
The discovery of a monarch butterfly egg on a milkweed plant teaches a young girl about metamorphosis.

With Airplanes in the Garden: Monarch Butterflies Take Flight readers will discover a unique children's nonfiction picture book, containing vibrant watercolor not typically found in a children's book. Correct terminology explains metamorphosis (egg to caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly) in a fun to read story. The book includes an informative section with migration maps, helpful tips to grow your own butterfly-friendly garden, and a butterfly song, which can be downloaded from the web. The book also contains web addresses to learn more about monarch butterflies.
