    Let the scientist in every child take wing.

    One day Miss Dana brings a surprise to school—three striped caterpillars and a flowerpot full of milkweed. Her students can't believe that these tiny, wriggling creatures less than an inch long will grow into butterflies, fragile beauties strong enough to fly thousands of miles to their winter home in Mexico.

    And so begins a magical month of metamorphosis. The children observe and draw the changes they see as the caterpillars transform themselves right before their eyes. When the newly formed butterflies break free of their chrysalises, it is time for the class to let them go find their place in the world.

    This captivating concept book simply and eloquently invites young children to witness and celebrate the cycle of life.
