Do you ever wonder what shoes bugs wear?

A little ladybug named Lucy did! She was playing hide and seek with her friends in a field of wildflowers. 1, 2, 3..... 10! Ready or not, here I come! she shouted. Lucy loved finding new places to hide. She peeked under a leaf, but saw nothing. She crawled inside a shiny bluebell, but only found a sleepy bumblebee. Where could her friends be hiding? Then she saw something curious. A giant leather object laying in the grass.

What is that? Lucy thought. It looked like one giant shoe! Maybe it's a shoe for a grasshopper! She imagined a grasshopper wearing the shoe, jumping high in the air. How silly that would be! Lucy giggled to herself. She couldn't wait to tell her friends about the funny shoe she found.

Bugs are cool and amazing?! Thanks for loving bugs too! 🐞

Just then, Lucy's friend, Charlie the Caterpillar, poked his head out from under a blade of grass. BOO! Charlie shouted. Lucy jumped in surprise. I found you! Charlie laughed. Lucy laughed too. I found a giant shoe! Lucy exclaimed. It must be for a grasshopper! Charlie's eyes widened. A shoe? Where? Lucy pointed her tiny little foot toward the giant leather object. Wow, you're right! It's huge! exclaimed Charlie. The two friends spent the rest of the afternoon imagining all the different bugs that might wear such a big shoe. Can you imagine what bug would wear a shoe that big?
