Have you seen butterflies this month? Today we read a few stories about them and looked for symmetry in the drawings. In Don't Worry Bear by Greg Foley, Bear is concerned about his friend Caterpillar, who disappears into a cocoon one fall day. Clara Caterpillar by Pamela Duncan Edwards, is a favorite among some of the library staff, and sends a good message to children about special gifts we each have. Waiting for Wings by Lois Ehlert is my favorite, because it shows the entire life cycle of butterflies and has beautiful drawings of many different kinds.
At craft time, we decorated butterflies using stickers, yarn, wiki sticks, markers and and other materials. Many of us remembered symmetry and tried hard to include it!
