The monarch butterflies are making their way back to Ontario. On April 13, 2018 there was a monarch sighting in Tennessee in a field of milkweed! Now is the time to share this colourful guide with your kids. Get them involved in planning their own beautiful butterfly garden and foster a hobby that helps save the monarch butterfly! Kids learn the anatomy and life cycle of the monarch as well as how to raise and then release them. A great little book to promote protection and conservation of monarch butterflies!
