“One butterfly is here because I stepped on it and it dead. Then the mommy; then this one eating. You can’t touch it because it’s hungry and it bite you. And this one can fly really high (throws butterfly in the air). And this little one did nothing because it stays home and eats, eats, eats, eats, eats, eats all day and it eats a computer! Her mother helped her fly and falls on her bottom. Then the broken one I fixed it now they broke again and I’m fixing it still. Then all butterflies live free. The end.”

“We need to draw a sunshine. A sunshine needs to be outside our window.”-Karmin, age 4
“Here goes the red falling to the snow.” –Sydney, age 4
