Auntie (Ann Morris, Author) and Erin (her niece) share a love of flowers and natural beauty. Auntie has a large flower garden that fascinates Erin, and the young one loves to visit and check on the progress of the flowers. One day while studying the flowers, she notices a colorful, striped "worm" on a volunteer milkweed plant. When she shows it to Auntie and asks questions, the quest begins. Auntie shows Erin how to seek information on the Internet and they learn together about the life cycle of th4 Monarch butterfly.
