Have you been to a live butterfly exhibit at a museum or at a zoo?  Where do these lovely exotic butterflies come from?  Come visit a butterfly farm in Costa Rica in Central America. Follow the life cycle of the Blue Morpho Butterfly from a tiny egg to a voracious larva (caterpillar) to pupa or chrysalis to finally a beautiful adult butterfly. Raising a butterfly or moth is not easy. The farmers must find the special plants for their food and keep them safe from predators like frogs, birds or snakes! When the caterpillars become chrysalises, the farmers send them, carefully packaged, to museums and zoos all over the world.  (Booktalk by Pennsylvania Young Readerís Choice Award Committee)
