The Very

Hungry
Caterpillar
by Eric Carle
In the light of the moon a little egg lay on a leaf.
One Sunday morning the warm sun came up and -
pop! - out of the egg came a tiny and very hungry
Caterpillar.
He started to look for some food.

I’m so
HUNGRY!
On Monday
he ate
through 1
apple.
But he was
still hungry.
On
Tuesday
he ate
through 2
pears, but
he was still
hungry.
On
Wednesday
he ate
through 3
plums, but
he was still
hungry.
On Thursday he ate
through 4
strawberries, but he
was still hungry.
On Friday he ate
through 5 oranges, but
he was still hungry.
On
Saturday
he ate
through 1
piece of
chocolate
cake,
1 icecream cone
1 pickle,
One slice of Swiss
cheese,
1 slice of salami
1 lollipop,
1 piece of cherry pie,
1 sausage,
1 cupcake,
And 1 slice of watermelon.

That night he had


a stomachache!
The very hungry Caterpillar then ate through one
green leaf. He started to feel better.
Now, the caterpillar was no longer small. He was a big,
fat, caterpillar.

BIG
He built a small house, called a cocoon around
himself. He stayed inside for more than 2 weeks.
Then he nibbled a small hole in the cocoon, pushed
his way out and…
A BEAUTIFUL

BUTTERFLY!
