School Library Connection - Karen M. Smith, Head of Children’s Services, Livonia Public Library, MI

"With beautiful illustrations and simple text, this series about migration for the purpose of reproduction will make a nice classroom discussion-starter. . . .The format will appeal to all collections; however, the series is very readable and will be enjoyed by many children." - School Library Connection

NSTA Recommends - Judy Kraus, Science Teacher, Hyde Park Middle School

"Acrylic, oil, and prisma color pencil illustrations by Joshua S. Brunet bring the monarch butterflies to life on each page. Blankets of orange and black decorating the trees in the forests of Mexico are beautifully drawn. A map marking the journey from as far away as Canada to Mexico gives the reader a frame of reference for the amazing journey. Fast facts, a glossary, critical thinking questions, and additional resources are available at the conclusion of the text, providing extensions." - NSTA Recommends
