I don’t know anyone who does not love The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. I think it is one of those timeless books that will just be around forever teaching children about the days of the week and counting.

So I made a felt story to go along with the book. We started at the very beginning “Int the light of the moon…”

Our caterpillar appears

eats through one apple

two pears

three plums

four strawberries

five oranges

An array of tasty treats…not all are very good for you

after his tummy ache a nice green leaf is just what our caterpillar needed

He is no longer a little caterpillar but a big fat caterpillar who builds himself a cocoon

before turning into a beautiful butterfly!
