Monarch and Milkweed by Helen Frost

One of natures most perfect relationships

Every spring the monarch butterfly migrates thousands of miles in search of the ideal milkweed plant. When she finds it, she lays her eggs on the plant, so when each egg hatches, the baby caterpillar can feed on the milkweed leaves. The milkweed plant then provides the perfect protection as the caterpillar turns into one of natures wonders, a chrysalis, before transforming into an even greater wonder: a monarch butterfly. And once the newborn butterfly soars away, the milkweed seeds fly away on the wind and start this cycle over again.

The exacting prose and jewel-toned illustrations echo the harmony of monarch and milkweed in this carefully researched book, explaining one of natures most spectacular displays in a refreshingly simple manner.

Questions?

A milkweed plant grows. A monarch butterfly finds it and lays an egg on the underside of a leaf. The egg hatches and so begins a new life cycle for the butterfly and the milkweed plant. Every summer, I raise and release anywhere from monarchs. I bring in the eggs to protect them from wasps, which are even better at finding them than I am, and then when the caterpillars hatch, I feed them milkweed from my garden until they turn into chrysalises, and, about 12 days later, butterflies. Monarchs need milkweed to survive.
