Once upon a time there was a family who had milkweed plants. They were very happy until the milkweed bug started eating the caterpillars. So they decided to save the caterpillars.
First they collected all of the caterpillars they could find. Then they put them in a little jar with a magnifying glass on top. Now they were safe! Each day the kids got milkweed to feed the caterpillars. As the caterpillars got bigger the kids had to collect more milkweed leaves.
