The journey starts on a farm in Costa Rica and ends at live butterfly exhibits around the world. See how butterflies are raised on a butterfly farm and how they make it to their new homes.--from the publisher
Have you ever seen a blue morpho butterfly? This book begins with that amazingly beautiful butterfly and follows its stages of metamorphosis and the stages of other pupae and caterpillars, too.
In Costa Rica these astonishing insects move through their life cycles on a butterfly farm and inside their greenhouses where just the right foods are waiting. They have everything they need to eat, grow and spread their wings heading into nearby forests and even for some, making a trip to the Museum of Science in Boston, Massachusetts.
