All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value!
The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at
deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small
mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to
a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged.
Please consider this before ordering.

With Linda Love. Nana Butterfly, seemingly some kind of expert, tells Hope that the scary insect she found will grow into a butterfly. Hope cares for the caterpillar, and, sure enough, it does; Hope names it after herself. The first-person narrative wavers in and out of the childlike at random, and photographs vary widely in quality and appeal. Appended information and activities may satisfy budding entomologists.

PreS-Gr 2—A little girl is in her mother's garden when she spies an unusual caterpillar. Her mother takes her and the insect to a butterfly center where they discover that their caterpillar will turn into a monarch butterfly. Taking the creature home, the girl is able to observe what happens during its life cycle. Monroe does an excellent job using appropriate scientific vocabulary along with dialogue to keep readers interested. The text is large and bold, making it accessible to emerging readers. There is also limited text on each page, which keeps the book from being too long for a read-aloud. The photographs are clear and help delineate the action, making it equally useful in elementary classrooms or with families exploring the subject. There is a "For Creative Minds" section that also helps extend the text; it includes a diagram of the butterfly's life cycle, vocabulary matching, and additional facts about monarchs.—Susan E.
