Butterflies Belong Here is a powerful story of everyday activism and hope.



In this moving story of community conservation, a girl finds a home in a new place and a way to help other small travelers.

This book is about the real change children can make in conservation and advocacy-in this case, focusing on beautiful monarch butterflies.

* From Deborah Hopkinson and Meilo So, the acclaimed team behind Follow the Moon Home

* An empowering, classroom-ready read

* The protagonist is a girl whose family has recently immigrated to the United States.

I
know what to look for: large black-and-orange wings with a border of
small white specks, flitting from flower to flower, sipping nectar. But
though I looked hard, I couldn't find even one. I wondered if monarch
butterflies belonged here. I wondered if I did, too.

Butterflies Belong Here is proof that even the smallest of us are capable of amazing transformations.

*
Equal parts educational and heartwarming, this makes a great gift for
parents and grandparents, as well as librarians, science teachers, and
educators.

* Those interested in beautiful butterflies and everyday activism will find this lovely book both motivating and inspiring.

* Perfect for children ages 5 to 8 years old

* Add it to the shelf with books like Thank You, Earth: A Love Letter to Our Planet by April Pulley Sayre, The Honeybee by Kirsten Hall, and Greta and the Giants: Inspired by Greta Thunberg's Stand to Save the World by Zoe Tucker
