    "This program is a professional presentation which would appeal to a wide range of ages, from K-8 and beyond. The film quality is exquisite. It is true to life, and close-up with intricate lepidopteron details clearly visible. The information includes all the basic information you would want to present to a science class studying the life cycle of butterflies. Life cycles are a recurring theme in the educational frameworks and science standards of most states." Velma A. Begley, M. Ed.-NSTA Multi-grade teacher South Shore Charter School Norwell, MA
