The Hungry Caterpillar (book by Eric Carle & fingerplay)
“I’m hungry,” said the caterpillar, “I think I’ll have some lunch”
And so she ate and ate and ate; I heard her munch and crunch.
“I’m sleepy,” said the caterpillar. “I want to go to bed.”
And so she made a safe cocoon, From her toes up to her head.
“I’m restless,” said the caterpillar. “I want to leap so high”
She left her cocoon and what do you know? She was a butterfly.
