About the Book

It’s time to put on your sneakers and grab your garden gloves, because we are going on a special journey as we build a basic butterfly garden designed to attract the monarch butterfly as well as other butterfly species. I will also take you on an exciting step-by-step walk through raising monarch butterflies in your home:

• The gathering of monarch eggs
• Understanding the growth stages of the monarch caterpillar and learning how to care for them
• Predators of monarch butterflies
• The milkweed plant and how valuable it is to the monarch butterfly
• The amazing process of the monarch caterpillar going into chrysalis
• Witnessing the miracle of the beautiful monarch as it emerges from chrysalis
