Silkworms Sylvia A. Johnson

PUB1920

1982. Sylvia A. Johnson. Humans have been raising silkworms for their precious silk for thousands of years. Because of its long association with man, the silkworm moth is actually considered to be domesticated. Like most moths and butterflies, silkworms have a special plant food that the caterpillars prefer to eat-mulberry leaves. Soon they are ready to spin their protective cocoons even though they have no natural enemies. This book explains the life cycle of the silkworm in amazing detail. Color photographs document every stage of the silkworms’ metamorphosis. 48 pages, soft cover, full-color photographs. Grades 4-6.
