Recently, I attended an event for Children's Librarians, and was able to choose a free picture book to take back to our library. I loved Caterpillar Dreams by Clive McFarland so much, I was anxious to bring it to Storytime so I could read it to kids! Henri, the caterpillar, was determined to fly and go on an amazing adventure - and he does! Check out the book to find out how! We also read Don't Worry Bear by Greg Foley, about Bear who is concerned as a small friend changes his form. Our last book was an old favorite: The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. This book is beautifully designed and illustrated, and children love it.
After a quick demonstration of symmetry, we made a butterfly with a craft stick body and beautifully decorated wings. We used stickers, tissue paper squares, foam shapes, wiki-stixs, crayons and markers to make the plain wings so colorful!
