I Wish I Were a Butterfly: Appreciating Diversity In Ourselves and Others
Because frog told him he was ugly, the littlest cricket now longs to be a pretty butterfly — until a spider teaches the cricket that all friends are beautiful.

      Y5 enjoyed a wonderful book by author James Howe called "I Wish I Were a Butterfly." In this story a cricket is not happy with whom he is. He considers himself very ugly. He wishes that he were a butterfly because he says that there is always beauty in a butterfly.

      As he meets other insects along the way they tell him that wishing is a waste of time. Then, one special friend goes with him to the water's edge; he looks back at their reflection and realizes to his surprise that the ugliness has faded and he is looking at two beautiful friends.

      After watching the video, the children worked in groups, retelling and illustrating the different parts of the story. 


      "I Wish I Were a Butterfly" reminds us that we all are unique and have something to learn from each other!
