Children Ages 4-6 • 13 mins. • Unabridged • © 2011

Gibbons’s book celebrates the life, habitat, and migration of the Monarch butterfly, and provides tips for raising one. Bonnie Kelley-Young’s narrative voice is well suited to the subject matter and its audience. Her gentle reading captures the wonder a young listener will have upon discovering the beauty of the Monarch. The sound effects enhance the story and add to the sense of wonder. Young does a fine job of distinguishing the text from the labels that are part of the illustrations and from the pronunciation guides for sounding out the scientific words. The page-turn signals allow time to explore the illustrations and read the labels. J.K.R. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2011]
