Overview of Great Migrations: Butterflies (National Geographic Readers Series)

The monarch butterfly, one of the most seemingly delicate of all of nature’s animals, proves to be one of the toughest in this reader. Making the yearly trip from the Northern United States and Canada to the Oyamel forest of Mexico is no easy task, and it takes five generations of butterflies in order to do so. Battling cold temperatures and the threat of starvation, these beautiful insects complete an almost 3,000 mile journey over the course of two months, only to have to turn and around and head back home.

Interesting information and specific details about monarch butterflies are presented on each page of this small paperback nonfiction text. Many numerous nonfiction features and the wonderful photographs and illustrations contained in this comprehensive text aid in the young independent reader's understanding and enjoyment of the subject. There are sidebars and captions, a table of contents, a glossary, an index, and voice bubbles with questions and answers that will expand the reader's thinking about the subject of the amazing monarch butterflies and their annual 2,500 mile migration from the forests of Mexico to Canada. Many unique features of the monarch butterfly such as their antennae, the signals they get from the sunlight, and the distance monarch can travel in a single day are carefully explained in straightforward text, supportive illustrations, and beautiful close-up photographs. Young readers can enjoy this text from cover to cover or use the bold headings, captions, and chapter titles to select the information which interests them the most and helps them gain understanding of this fascinating migratory insect. Curious children who would like to learn more about nature and the world around them will also enjoy the other titles in this wonderful series because they will be able to read these texts independently, and they will be fascinated by all the new information, subject specific vocabulary, and the unique, strange, and unusual facts about the world of nature.
