Sample text from Butterflies

A tiny egg is laid on a leaf, luscious and green,

Sometimes ribbed, oval or round, like a mini-bean.

Next comes the larva stage – it’s about to begin!

Out hatches a caterpillar, long, lean and thin.

It has six true legs and ten false ones too.

That’s probably something you never knew!
