Milkweed Matters

A Close Look at the Life Cycles within a Food Chain

Authored by Lisa Connors
Illustrated by Betty Gatewood

Beginning with the life cycle of the milkweed plant, this book follows the other species intricately tied to it in a typical food chain starting with a milkweed plant in the US and ending with the owl and decomposers in Mexico. Other life cycles the reader will encounter are the monarch butterfly, black-eared mouse, owl and decomposers. This book aims to help young readers see the connections between life cycles and food chains. While nonfiction, it reads as a story to engage young readers and is also useful for teachers in the classroom through grade four.
