Gotta Go! Gotta Go!

September is fast approaching and that means the kids are headed back to school. Another journey back is occurring in nature: the amazing migration of the monarch butterfly. After hatching from a tiny egg, the monarch caterpillar eats the leaves of the milkweed plant and begins its miraculous transformation inside its chrysalis. Once metamorphosis is complete, the butterfly makes its way to a particular spot in Mexico and returns north in the spring.
The children's book Gotta Go! Gotta Go! by Sam Swope is one of my favorites to share at this time of year. Come check out the books about monarchs on our "mini" display here in the children's room. Better yet, head outside and look for a field of milkweed plants!
