Monarch Butterflies Up Close

Series: Zoom In on Animals!

By Carmen Bredeson

Have you ever tried to get a better look at a monarch butterfly, but it fluttered away before you could get close enough? Now you can get a close-up look at monarch butterflies, including their wings, antennae, eyes, proboscis, and claws. Striking color photographs show the stages of the life cycle: egg, chrysalis, caterpillar, and butterfly. This fact-filled, full color book is ideal for early readers or read-aloud, and also supports the National Science Education Standards for K–4 Life Science.
