Would John Farrington, an 11-year-old boy, be able to help the beautiful Monarch butterflies complete their migration journey safely? After finding that their original 'safe haven' had been turned into a concrete mini-mall, these beautiful creatures turned to John to guide them to a new location. They needed a place to feed, to rest, and to feel safe. In the story, 'The Prince of Butterflies' by Bruce Coville, John became 'one' with the butterflies and led them to a lush green meadow. This experience changed John's life forever. From that day forward, John dedicated his life to the protection of these magnificent insects. He was instrumental in helping to establish 'The Butterfly Road' legislation that protects the Monarch butterflies during their yearly migration. This up-lifting story of courage and dedication shows how one person's vision made a difference and saved the Monarch butterflies from extinction.
