Title: Handle With Care:  An Unusual Butterfly Journey

Author: Loree Griffin Burns

Photographer:  Ellen Harasimowicz


Follow a butterfly on its 2,000 mile journey from Costa Rica to the Museum of Science in Boston, where it will arrive in pupa stage and emerge for all to see after a couple more weeks.  This wonderful new book highlights a blue morpho butterfly farm that raises butterflies to reintroduce into the forests in South America, and also to send around the world so that others can learn about them.  Up-close photographs, a glossary, further reading suggestions, and downloadable educational resources make this book a valuable part of learning about an animal’s life cycle.
