Level 1 and up – Present tense
Monarch butterflies migrate as far as 3000 miles each year! Is it just ‘instinct’ that drives these small and delicate creatures to fly from the U.S. and Canada to Michoacán, México? Is it mere coincidence that millions of butterflies return to Michoacán, or is there another force that drives them to arrive… just in time for the Day of the Dead? As Teresa and her grandmother prepare the family’s altar to honor their Mazahua ancestors, Teresa discovers the incredible secret that hides among the wings of the monarch butterflies.
