May – Lettuce And The Butterfly
May’s Book of the Month. Lettuce is looking for butterflies! The Foodies Books bring you stories from the veggie patch for each month of the year, and all the characters, scenery and weather are in season that month.
It was a bright and breezy May day in the garden. A good day for playing and having fun…
In this story, Pea excitedly tells Lettuce that she has seen a butterfly. Lettuce has never seen one and uses some incomplete descriptions to try to find one but keeps finding lots of other things instead.
The story lends itself to discussions of butterflies and their habitats. Our free downloadable activities explore the theme of butterflies in more depth, with activities to create a butterfly haven, a feeding station and find out about their life cycle.
