“In the light of the moon a little egg lay on a leaf.” So begins Eric Carle’s modern classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
One sunny Sunday, the caterpillar was hatched out of a tiny egg. He was very hungry.
On Monday, he ate through one apple; on Tuesday, he ate through three plums–and still he was hungry.
