THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR by: Eric Carle - Author Study
This is an excellent book that addresses the life cycle of a butterfly. Starting as an egg, it hatches into a tiny caterpillar and begins eating until it because a large and fat caterpillar. After it has eaten enough it weaves a cocoon and hibernates before emerging as a colorful and beautiful butterfly. I think this book would be great to use during a science lesson for 1st to 3rd graders; it also addresses the concept of healthy and unhealthy foods.
