The Crunching Munching Caterpillar wishes he could fly. In this book,
by Sheridan Cain, he meets different creatures that can fly and they all
describe what he needs to have in order to fly.
He needs wings, be as light as dandelion fluff or float like a feather.
So when he goes to sleep he dreams about flying. I love the
illustrations and how the text floats around the page.
I was inspired to set up a question for the children to think about
while they look at our chrysalis.
We started by talking about dreams and asking if they could think
of a dream they had while sleeping.
Some could tell a whole story about their dreams and were able to
create a dream for the caterpillar.
While others drew about a dream as a wish.
Something that they like
so the caterpillar
would like it too.
