Annotation: Butterflies and moths grace nearly all the earth and have done so for millions of years. They're masters of disguise and shameless copycats, simply to survive. Some travel thousands of miles in mass migrations. Others spend their life cycles on an acre or two.

Publisher Description:
Nothing is more beautiful than a field covered with monarch butterflies - in fact, a field full of any butterfly species is quite magical. Recognized across cultures as a symbol of hope and rebirth, this lovely creature is the subject of A Shimmer of Butterflies. A photographic trove for young readers, the book focuses on the butterfly's amazing life cycle. With 43 gorgeous color photos, it shows the process of metamorphosis; the incredible migration of the monarch which spans generations; the threats posed from the loss of habitat; and more. The book presents numerous interesting facts for young readers including everything from how a butterfly's body parts help it to live uniquely to how these amazing navigators determine their flight patterns.
