The Hungry Caterpillar

In our garden one day a little egg lay on a leaf. One morning the warm sun came up and out of the egg came a tiny caterpillar. 

He started to look for some food. On Monday he ate through one apple  - but he was still hungry. 

On Tuesday he ate two pears   -  but he was still hungry. 

On Wednesday he ate through three plums - but he was still hungry. 

On Thursday he ate through four strawberries - but he was still hungry. 

On Friday he ate through five oranges - but he was still hungry.  

And on Saturday he ate through more apples.

In the next week he ate through more and more pears, plums, strawberries and leaves. But one day he stopped eating. 

Now he was a big fat caterpillar. He built a house around himself. He stayed inside there more than two weeks. But one day he pushed his way out and he was a beautiful caterpillar.
