Monarch Come Play with MeMonarch! Come Play with Me

By Ba Rea

Named one of the
American Association for the Advancement of Science
Best Books of 2006
(SB&F list)



Monarch Come Play with Me, by Ba Rea, uses large, detailed illustrations and the inquiries of a young girl to present a monarch caterpillar’s metamorphosis from egg through caterpillar and chrysalis to butterfly for a pre-k through 3rd grade audience. An informational text at the end of the book introduces readers to monarch science through Fred and Norah Urquhart’s discovery—with the help of many citizen scientists—of the monarchs’ overwintering sites in Mexico

.
Perhaps the best way to excite young children about science, nature and conservation is to foster their personal connections with organisms in the natural world. This story follows a young girl as she gets to know a monarch during its amazing metamorphosis from caterpillar to adult butterfly. As she compares her own growth and activities to those of the monarch, she learns to love it and then let it go. The delightful illustrations and simple text will enchant young children and adults alike.
— Dr. Karen Oberhauser, Director of Monarchs in the Classroom

Quizás el mejor modo de entusiasmar a los chiquitos sobre ciencia, la naturaleza, y la conservación es de fomentar sus conexiones personales con organismos en el mundo natural. Este libro trata de una joven cuando ella llega a conocer a una monarca durante su metamorfosis asombrosa de la oruga a la mariposa adulta.
