Caterpillars Can’t Fly

Imagine with me that you are a creepy, crawly caterpillar. You crawl around from leaf to leaf, eating them all up as you go along. You are happy with your creepy, crawly life until a butterfly comes along and tells you that you need to learn to fly. After all, aren’t caterpillars supposed to turn into butterflies? Of course! You admire the beautiful butterfly flitting overhead. He has such beautiful wings, and he floats so gracefully along above the flowers. “Wow,” you think. “It really would be wonderful to be a butterfly. Flying must be so much better than just crawling around on the ground. I’m going to learn to fly!”
