        Simple to fit in a busy curriculum and be able to add children's ideas as we went along.
        Very clear instructions for adults who haven't tried anything like this before.

        My year one children adore this book. We're doing the butterfly life cycle and they just can't stop wriggle, wriggle, wriggling around when they sing the songs! I love the music - simple but still sounds really good. Can't wait to do the frog life cycle next year.

        I have performed the Caterpillar Boogie Musical on two occasions, both times being with foundation stage children. The children looked so colourful dressed in beautiful caterpillar, bird and butterfly masks and we linked the work with our topic on life cycles. I thoroughly enjoyed playing the Piano for the musical. There was not a dry eye amongst the staff or older pupils.
