My son really enjoyed the story, and he was fascinated on the different stages of the monarch butterfly. This book is colorful, educational, and entertaining! My son especially enjoyed the “jokes” found through out the book. It’s a very hands-on book as well with instructions on how to make your own butterfly sandwich, and a butterfly craft.
For breakfast little one of course, made his own butterfly sandwich! I made the sandwich filling with a little bit of mayo, and a slice of deli meat. I went ahead and cut it for him, and gave him a mozzarella stick (for the body), cheddar sticks (for the antennas), and a grape tomato (for the head); and I let him assemble it all by himself.
I found a simple coloring page on the life cycle of the butterfly here, and you can have your child make a cute monarch butterfly craft printable from Learn, Create, Love.
