Colin’s Butterfly Journal, Day 8

Today’s entry includes a narration of relevant reading:

The name of the book I just read is Houdini, the Amazing Caterpillar. First, Houdini was an egg. Then he grew up to be a caterpillar with bold stripes, a big smile, and a hearty appetite. Then he performed acts and upgraded them when the people who wanted to see them at first stopped looking. Very few people came. Then he decided to do the most amazing trick of all! He turned into a chrysalis, or a pupa, as you might want to call it. Then he opened his eyes, smiled, broke out of his chrysalis, and he was a big butterfly!

Today the chrysalises look like little plantains hanging from the ceiling.

The above was dictated by Colin and transcribed by his mother.
