The Hungry Caterpillar

1 juicy leaf, 2 tart plums, 3 juicy strawberries…

I took this shot for tickles, we have a book called the hungry caterpillar, of which I am sure there are a few variations, ie counting etc but this one we have which belonged to Chaos, counts to 5 and then turns into a beautiful butterfly. It also has a little puppet where you can put your finger in to make the the little puppet caterpillar wiggle around (which tickles loves)… in my case its my little finger since the authors clearly did think about catering for those with larger hands ;( c'mon people equal equality 😉 lol..

I saw this caterpillar going gangbusters on this leaf and in the space of several minutes he had nailed the entire leaf and was heading for a second helping! I thought it a great supplement to our hungry caterpillar story at home and i am sure it will become a useful midnight settling tool 🙂
