Stopping on A Warm Summer Eve


Two strangers happened upon one another by chance and circumstance.

“Stay away from me,” one said rudely.
“Okay. I’m just here for snack,” replied the other.
“You’re to close to me. And stop looking at me.”
“Don’t worry. I’m still hungry. I need something else to eat.”
“Really? How much can you possibly eat? You’re going to get fat.”

That evening, the first stranger arrived home and explained how he met the very hungry catapillar.

When the second stranger arrived home he too had a story to tell. However, he told of his encounter with the grouchy ladybug.

  1. This would obviously work for toddlers encountering each other too, maybe minus the whole “you’re going to get fat part”… but everything else. Yep, that just seems like a normal toddler to toddler interaction.

  2. My children are all grown up now – thanks for the reminder of these two classic characters. Have coincidently been chucking out (recycling to the second hand shop) lots of books this weekend and spared the hungry caterpillar on the basis any grandchildren will love it too!
