Milkweed Books

The milkweed in our pollinator garden is wonderful! It is gloriously thriving. The rest of the pollinator garden is struggling, but the milkweed is doing great! I am hopeful that Zac and I will be able to raise some monarchs.

It is easy to find kids books about monarchs, but here's a list that also includes books which feature milkweed plants as well. They are so fun!
