Dear Friends, We were so excited to find this YouTube video about the life cycle of a monarch caterpillar and butterfly. We especially like that it shows a caterpillar munching away on milkweed leaves. It reminds us of the spoken section of our kids song, I Almost Kissed a Butterfly: They munch, munch on delicious leaves. Munch, munch, munch, munch (repeat) 'Til every little caterpillar's large enough To begin to do some really fancy stuff... Like turn into a chrysalis, an amazing metamorphosis ... (from I Almost Kissed a Butterfly by Birdsong and the Eco-Wonders) We find it fascinating that a crawling, leaf-munching caterpillar can actually change itself into a fluttering, nectar-drinking butterfly.
