¡Monarca Ven! Juega Conmigo (the spanish version of Monarch Come Play with Me), by Ba Rea, uses large, detailed illustrations and the inquiries of a young girl to present a monarch caterpillar’s metamorphosis from egg through caterpillar and chrysalis to butterfly for a pre-k through 3rd grade audience. An informational text at the end of the book introduces readers to monarch science through Fred and Norah Urquhart’s discovery—with the help of many citizen scientists—of the monarchs’ overwintering sites in Mexico.
