Milkweed Visitors, by Mary Holland, uses simple text and exquisite photography to provide a close look at many of the creatures that visit her common milkweed patch in Vermont. The text introduces concepts including predator, nectivore, herbivore and pollination. The pages are numbered and there is a glossary.

Parents, teachers and friends will love reading this book aloud to budding naturalists, and will learn fascinating facts themselves as they do so. The ­stunning photographs and accurate text encourage questioning, observation and exploration of local flora and fauna by young and old alike.
— Dr. Karen Oberhauser


NSTA Recommends Review:

Milkweed Visitors is a spectacular book that introduces readers and listeners to the many small insects that visit milkweed plants. Early readers will enjoy reading the book, while older students will delight in sharing the text and photos with younger students. It illustrates a variety of relationships among animals and this special plant.
With the introduction of vocabulary such as nectivore, predator, and proboscis, readers will learn important science concepts. This 32-page, informative, inspiring book is a splendid resource for preschoolers through second graders. The book lists two websites for further research on monarch butterflies. Don’t miss out on this special visual treat.
