Abstract:

"Why are butterflies so universally loved? Is it the dazzling colors within exquisite winged living art? Is it the miracle of change that fascinates us--that wonderful metamorphosis from tiny egg to brilliant insect? Avis Harley explores these questions and many others that have captivated humans throughout history. Eighteen structured poems--haiku, sonnets, cinquain, limerick, and other forms--examine how monarch butterflies taste with their feet, migrate 2,500 miles every year, and cover entire forest groves when they rest. A 'Small Matters' section at the back explains the facts and science in the poems."--Publisher description.

A nice addition to any library.

     I really enjoyed this book about the monarch butterfly.  Their story from beginning to end, is told though several different types of poetry.  There is an acrostic ABC poem about Wintering Over.  This would be great to use with K-6.
