Making the Monarch Connection – The Buy a Book for Students program
Here is a wonderful opportunity to help share the Monarch story with the children who live in and around the Monarch sanctuaries in Mexico. It’s a book donation program – simply a wonderful thing to do:
Bas Relief, LLC, Monarchs Across Georgia and Journey North are once again collaborating to send greetings from your class/household to the students in the monarch reserves through Monarchs Across Georgia’s Mexico Book Project. You can participate in the Buy a Book for Students in Mexico program and send the Spanish version of Monarch Come Play with Me— ¡Monarca Ven! Juega Conmigo—to the reserves with a special bookplate with greetings from you. The books will be delivered to the classrooms by Estela Romero at the same time that she delivers the Symbolic Monarchs.
The deadline to place your order is November 1.
Children who live near the monarch reserves in Mexico welcome the butterflies every winter, but they rarely experience what so many children in the United States and Canada do—caterpillars growing, eating milkweed, turning into chrysalides and emerging as adult monarch butterflies.
The book Monarch! Come Play with Me tells the story of the monarch life cycle from a child’s point of view. This is an opportunity to send the Spanish version of the book to a classroom in Mexico and share your monarch experience with them. In appreciation, a bookplate with your name and location will be attached to the inside cover.
