The Very Hungry Caterpillar - author reading, French, craft AND edible life-cycles


I think I have to confess how much I am enjoying blogging at the moment.

It all starts with one little thing and then I get all excited and go off on a thread.....

I loved reading this book to my children when they were little - I remember my daughter joining in with the refrain "But he was still hungry".

Below you can listen to author Eric Carle read his brilliant book.

Here is the same book read in French. KS2 - can you identify the days of the week and any of the foods eaten by the very hungry caterpillar?

Feeling crafty? Why not make your own paper plate caterpillar like this one? If you send me photographs, I will add them to our blog.

This brilliant book is actually a story of the life cycle of a caterpillar/butterfly.

Can you make your own edible butterfly life-cycle? If you send me photographs - before you gobble them up - I will add them to our blog.
