The Life Cycle of the Monarch Butterfly product reviews

Proud to promote NZ productsDid you know that the monarch butterfly can fly only after the sun has warmed its wings? Or that monarchs can fly great distances - covering 2000 kilometres in 2-4 days?

You will be fascinated by the background story of these beautiful creatures, often found fluttering through our gardens.

The Life Cycle of the Monarch Butterfly comes alive in stunning images and educational text.

What a beautiful little book! Thank you so much for the opportunity to review this one. It is gorgeous. Full of facts, bright, and colorful, and I was amazed to learn something within the first two pages. By the end of the book I was astounded at how different monarchs are from normal butterflies, and the facts in it were really quite amazing... resulting in a full discussion between myself, a friend who was visiting and my father. And of course also resulting in all of us now wanting to purchase monarch butterfly plants, haha.

A brilliant book which teaches so much but is interesting, not overwhelming and full of beautiful bright pictures, and lovely for any age too.

I have always loved the monarch butterfly. It's something we Kiwis have adopted as one of our own and it has become a part of every 'Kiwi Summer' to have yellow and black caterpillars slowlyly dissolving the swanplants, followed by red/orange/black lace fluttering around.
I found this book to be fascinating and when I showed it to some younger family members they were enthralled too. It certainly has every hallmark of a quality educational, entertaining book. The only thing it was missing was a little packet of swanplant seeds stuck inside the front cover with a page dedicated to growing instructions. Now THAT would have made this a perfect-10 book for me.
All in all, I am so glad I have this, and wish I had gotten something like it a lot sooner. This year, we convert the weed garden to swanplants!
