Have you ever been scared of the dark? Or big life changes?

I Am a Butterfly is a charming story, told in dazzling photographs, about a monarch butterfly who faces metamorphosis, overcomes her fear of the dark chrysalis, and takes flight with beautiful new wings. Big, beautiful changes, no matter how scary at first, can bring new friends and new opportunities filled with delicious nectar.

Resources and action points provide many ways to become actively engaged in protecting the monarch butterfly population at home or at school. You'll learn about the monarch lifecycle and how to attract monarchs to your own backyard, which will be great fun and can help grow back the endangered monarch butterfly population.
