This is an amazing book that details the little known world of butterfly farming. Starting out at El Bosque Nuevo in Costa Rica, beautiful photographs showcase the life cycle of a butterfly from egg to pupa, and then the journey to a museum in Boston. The photographs capture some amazing images during the transformation process, and children will be fascinated with the information presented about butterfly farming.
