Handle With Care: An Unusual Butterfly Journey

Written by Loree Griffin Burns, Illustrated by Ellen Harasimowicz

Where do the butterflies in museums come from? From a butterfly farm, of course! This book is a fantastic look at how butterflies are raised from eggs and sent to museums. The pictures of the different stages of the butterfly life cycle are the best feature of this book. Most people only see the larva stage and adult stage. This book shows how small the eggs are and how the chrysalis is perfectly packaged. The clear and concise text is the perfect accompaniment to the beautiful butterflies.
