About this item

This School Library Journal Best Book of the Year celebrates everything butterfly, from migration to metamorphosis! It's hard to be Velma entering first grade. That's because everyone has marvelous memories of her two older sisters, who were practically perfect first graders, and no one even notices Velma. But all that changes on a class trip to the butterfly conservatory, a place neither of her sisters has been. When a monarch roosts on Velma's finger and won't budge for days—no one will ever forget it . . . or her! Kids will love reading about Velma's own transformation in this perfect addition to any science curriculum.

Following in the shadows of her two perfect older sisters, Velma feels easily forgotten in the mix of her first grade class, but when she takes part in a class trip to the butterfly conservatory where a beautiful butterfly lands on her finger and won't let go for days, Velma is certain that she will now be remembered too!
