Story Summary

The Very Hungry Caterpillar is one of my favorite stories. It is about a caterpillar that pops out of an egg and is very hungry.

He eats everything that he can find until he gets a bad bellyache. He then builds a house around himself and stays in it for over two weeks.

When he finally comes out he is much different than he was before he built his house. He is no longer a fuzzy wuzzy caterpillar.

Critical Thinking Question

What do you think the butterfly looked like when it came out of it's cacoon?
