Book Information

Okay... how do spiders stick to walls and ceilings? Why don't they fall off? Is it super spider glue?A courageous young reader has decided to try to love spiders. How hard can it be? What could you do to become one with your inner spider...maybe make that your outer spider?

You could maybe study a spider and get to appreciate him. Let's try this one...the one right here on the page. Uh oh. Wait a minute. This particular spider is moving. No more studying... it's time for a big squish. Well, that didn't go so well.

Luckily, there is an outline of a handprint on the page to show you exactly where to put your hand to do that squishy job. Maybe you'll like the next spider a little bit better.Maybe we should try another spider.....and see how it goes.....let's hope the handprints are ready and waiting.....(and they are)!

Great fun! A little learning! Fabulous spider drawings with some stealthy info and winsome faces.

This is the perfect book to read to a child who loves the edgy, the gross, wants to tiptoe in the direciton of scary but not go too far, and who loves to interact with a book and maybe come away a little bit smarter.

Also, perfect for parents who love to slip a little learning in on the side, who want their children to feel at home with nature and most of all....who know their child needs a book with a few surprises.
