Product Description
This song was inspired by the book The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.

Sing a Book, writes songs to give children an opportunity to showcase their learning, as a class assembly or end of year play, while promoting the positive impact of reading.

After an in-depth study of this book as part of literacy, children can rein-act the story through song and drama. Performing arts is an all-inclusive forum, which allows every child, regardless of physical or academic ability to take part.

To truly embed the understanding of the book- costume, staging and any ICT work, for the performance, can be included in the planning as part of a creative curriculum; science, maths, art, DT, music, dance and drama.

The song uses a 'call and response' approach in the verses, which can be song by individuals or as a choral group.

Note the gap in the chorus after "yawning" to give the caterpillar time to physically yawn. In verse 6, stop the music to allow the list of item he eats to be read out, acted out or displayed on the overhead.

The music sheet can be played for a guitar or piano and there is also a backing track for non-musicians.
