Caterpillar to Butterfly by Camilla de la Bedoyere introduces this subject by answering with the question “What is a butterfly?” followed by a look at basic butterfly anatomy. From there, the text provides an over view of the life cycle and an expanded exploration of Monarch development from egg to caterpillar to pupa then to adult. A general look at Monarch migration is also included.
True to the series concept, the text is readily accessible for children and accented with illustrations featuring crisp, up-close photographs, and clearly labeled diagrams. Notes for parents and teachers provide related activities for further exploration. A glossary and index complete the 24 page paperback book.
