This book is the record of a miracle. The metamorphosis of a tiny egg to a caterpiller, then to a chrysalis, and finally to a beautiful butterfly is one of nature's most astonishing miracles. The stunning pictures in this book - many taken with a microscopic lens - will guide you and your child or student to record and understand the progress of the miracle that takes place in your hands, with your own caterpillar/butterfly. More than 140 photographs capture rare sequences: the hatchling eating its way out of the egg; the first green meal moving through the caterpillar's intestines; and a caterpillar shedding its skin. Ample space for notes, drawings and progress charts encourage children to be scientists - and in the process, gain a profound appreciation for these remarkable tiny beings. The book includes 20 pages of teacher information, including answers to questions, charts, tips for teachers, and pages of resources.
