The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Written By: Eric Carle

By: Keilah Moore

The very hungry caterpillar basically talks about a caterpillar that hatched and was hungry. Everyday he ate one more things than he ate the day before. On Saturday he ate too much junk food and started feeling bad. He ate a green leaf and got better. Then he wasn't hungry any more so he built a cocoon around himself for more than 2 weeks. When he came out he was a beautiful butterfly.

Don't Be Greedy !

I made an inference that the author was trying to get across the point to not be greedy.

The reason i think this is because in the story it says, "That night he had a stomach-ache!" The caterpillar had a stomach ache from eating all that food on Saturday. This tells you don't be greedy, because there might not be a good result. In real life greediness can lead to violence. Being greedy can lead to violence by you wanting to control people. When you want people to control people you might have to harm them to get them to listen to you. Just like in the Holocaust when Hitler wanted to be powerful he was greedy for a army to try to take over people.

Be Careful !

I made an inference that the author was also trying to get the point across about being careful about what you take in.

The reason I said this is because in the story it says, "The next day was Sunday again. The caterpillar ate through one nice green leaf, and after that he felt much better." I related this to real life by watching the people you hang around because they can lead to bad results. If you hang around the good people in life you will be better and most likely to succeed. In this story the caterpillar need to eat a healthy green leaf and not cupcakes, pie, ice cream, and other bad things.

Are you careful about what you see and hear?

I'm not sure if I'm careful about what I see and hear, but I know that my mother is extremely careful about what I see and hear. I am careful about not repeating what I see and hear.

Yes because it could not be true and the person could be lying

Usually I am because I'm not one who wants to know every detail of everything, even the sickening and gross ones

Yes, I don't listen or look at certain things because I don't want to get caught up in the wrong crowd.

Yes because sometimes if you hear or see the wrong things, something bad could happen.

I think that I am careful about what I see hear because some things are just not meant for me to listen to or to see. If I see something that I'm not supposed to see something bad could happen.

I agree with Ashley. If you don't want to see something but you do.... you kind of regret it, but it's not really your fault.... unless you wanted to see specifically that and regretted looking it up or looking at it later.

I am careful with what I see and hear. I don't like seeing inappropriate stuff and don't like listening to bad stuff either.
