National Geographic Readers: Great Migrations Butterflies

The monarch butterfly, one of the most seemingly delicate of all of nature’s animals, proves to be one of the toughest in this reader. Making the yearly trip from the Northern United States and Canada to the Oyamel forest of Mexico is no easy task, and it takes five generations of butterflies in order to do so. Battling cold temperatures and the threat of starvation, these beautiful insects complete an almost 3,000 mile journey over the course of two months, only to have to turn and around and head back home.

    Love NatGeo Kids! Awesome book! Between the pictures and text, it would be interesting to a wide range of ages. My granddaughter is 1st grade & she loved a NatGeo Kids magazine I picked up a couple weeks ago, (first I had seen). I can’t wait to give her this. I decided to order direct from Amazon rather than do the subscription based on numerous reviews concerning subscription/renewal issues. It is full of info & pictures & is gift quality!

    I am a homeschooling mom. We have been watching the butterly life cycle in our butterfly garden. This book talks about the migration of Monarch butterlies. The pictures are beautiful, and the information goes hand in hand with learning about the life cycle of butterlies. My kids are ages 5 and 7, and they weren’t bored at all!
