    Observing a monarch butterfly as it transforms itself from caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly is among the most thrilling experiences that nature offers. Kids can see this for themselves—and help preserve the monarch butterfly population—by raising their own monarch butterflies, a project made easy with the help of this detailed guide.

    How to Raise Monarch Butterflies explains the dangers monarchs face in today’s world and easy, rewarding ways readers can help conserve the monarchs’ feeding grounds.

    This informative, updated edition contains: more than 40 new colorful and detailed photos; more secrets to help you find eggs and caterpillars; instructions on how to feed a monarch and more details on their care; expanded information on varieties and propagation of milkweed; information on the diverse insects in the milkweed patch; and suggestions for starting a butterfly garden (including a large photograph of an outstanding monarch way station).

    Soft Cover, 48 pages, 8" x 8" x 2/16", full color illustrations and photographs throughout, glossary, resources, and index.

    Carol Pasternak is a photographer, personal trainer, and educator who raises monarch butterflies with her family in Toronto. “The author’s love of monarch butterflies inspired this step-by-step guide for children. Written in kid-friendly language, it encourages youngsters six and up to help boost declining monarch populations by raising butterflies from eggs or caterpillars collected from fields. The photography is outstanding. Incredibly detailed, Pasternak’s guide spills with fact, close-up photos and links to great websites.”
