Storytelling: Lotli the Monarch Butterfly
Meet "Lotli" the caterpillar to learn about the origin of the Monarch butterfly, its biology, and conservation. The book's illustrations were based on the upcycled crafts Ciclomanias makes out of corrugated cardboard boxes, such as the Monarch butterfly wall décor:
Elizabeth Romo-Rabago from Ciclomanias will read Lotli for your homeroom, and lead the class in a short activity.
The book has connections to science, fine arts and social studies for all elementary grades, from one to six, including topics like small crawling and flying animals, animal life cycles, waste and our world, and more!
Here is a testimonial from Dr. Christina Barron-Ortiz, Assistant Curator, Quaternary Palaeontology, Royal Alberta Museum:
“The book of ‘Lotli’ is one of the most comprehensive children’s books that I have seen. It is difficult not to fall in love with Lotli the caterpillar, whose noble acts convey to the reader a number of principles and values that I feel are important to promote in children of all ages. Values such as friendship, compassion, and self confidence arise in this beautiful legend. The book of ‘Lotli’ also provides a gateway to discussing topics on environmental education and natural sciences, which are important to the development of environmental literacy inside and outside of the classroom. As it is mentioned in the second section of the book, the monarch butterfly is without question one of nature’s wonders, and it is our responsibility to develop practices that will promote its conservation and that of other species as well. I congratulate the authors for connecting art, literature, and environmental education in such a fun and creative way."
