Airplanes in the Garden is an award-winning book that educates and entertains.
An imaginative young girl learns about the wonders of nature and the secrets of metamorphosis as
she observes two special caterpillars-from the moment she discovers their eggs on the milkweed
leaves until their emergence as beautiful monarch butterflies.

this Common Core-related book enables children to learn about the life cycle of a butterfly while
they read the story. Included are several teaching aids; monarch migration maps, word games,
a butterfly song and tips on growing a butterfly friendly garden.
