[00:00:10.260]Very hungry caterpillar
[00:00:15.320]In the light of the moon, a little egg lay on a leaf.
[00:00:19.770]One Sunday morning, the warm sun came up and pop,
[00:00:22.660]out of the egg came a tiny and very hungry caterpillar.
[00:00:27.890]He started to look for some food.
[00:00:30.050]On Monday, he ate through one apple,
[00:00:32.060]but he was still hungry.
[00:00:34.950]On Tuesday, he ate through two pears,
[00:00:36.870]but he was still hungry.
[00:00:40.100]On Wednesday, he ate through three plums,
[00:00:42.630]but he was still hungry.
[00:00:45.840]On Thursday, he ate through four strawberries,
[00:00:48.250]but he was still hungry.
[00:00:51.480]On Friday, he ate through five oranges,
[00:00:53.400]but he was still hungry.
[00:00:56.960]On Saturday, he ate through one piece of chocolate cake,
[00:00:59.500]one ice cream cone, one pickle, one slice of swiss cheese,
[00:01:03.030]once slice of salami, one lollipop,
[00:01:05.500]one piece of strawberry pie, one sausage, one cupcake,
[00:01:08.680]and one slice of watermelon.
[00:01:10.700]That night he had a stomach ache.
[00:01:14.320]The next day was Sunday again.
[00:01:16.120]The caterpillar had ate through one nice green leaf.
[00:01:19.050]And after that he felt much better.
[00:01:24.330]Now he wasn't hungry anymore,
[00:01:26.080]and he wasn't a little caterpillar anymore.
[00:01:28.260]He was a big fat caterpillar.
[00:01:30.590]He built a small house called a cocoon around himself.
[00:01:33.340]He stayed inside for more than two weeks,
[00:01:35.530]then he nibbled a hole in the cocoon,
[00:01:37.730]pushed his way out,
[00:01:38.780]and he was a beautiful butterfly.
[00:01:43.060]I would like to invite families to read through this book.
[00:01:46.476]But have pictures of different foods printed out
[00:01:50.050]as well as, um, a chart of the days of the week.
[00:01:53.580]Then have the children place the correct food item
[00:01:56.770]on the correct day of the week.
