One Sunday morning the warm sun came up and - pop! - out of the egg came a tiny and very hungry caterpillar.Eric Carle in The Very Hungry Caterpillar
He built a small house, called a cocoon, around himself. He stayed inside for more than two weeks. Then he nibbled a hole in the cocoon, pushed his way out and...
he was a beautiful butterfly!
On Saturday, he ate through one piece of chocolate cake, one ice-cream cone, one pickle, one slice of Swiss cheese, one slice of salami, one lollipop, one piece of cherry pie, one sausage, one cupcake, and one slice of watermelon.
That night he had a stomach ache.
The "Very Hungry Caterpillar" story is about hope. You, like the little caterpillar, will grow up, unfold your wings and fly off into the future.Eric Carle
Simplify, slow down, be kind. And don't forget to have art in your life - music, paintings, theater, dance, and sunsets.Eric Carle
The hardest part is developing the idea, and that can take years.Eric Carle
