Actually I'm looking to add the book called 'Incy Wincy Spider' by Keith Chapman, but I guess this might be it.

This one is has fancy production values, with glitter and bright colours, and the antics of the spider appeal to my six-year-old daughter to the point where she likes this much more than I do!

This is an extension of the hand rhyme the itsy bitsy spider. Through the story the spider is blown from one farm animal to the next until he ends up safely in his mothers web, where he then goes to bed.

The children liked the pictures in this book. They also enjoyed making the different sounds of the farm animals.

After the book, the class and I did the hand rhyme of the itsy bitsy spider.

Here's another expanded version of what happens to that adventurous arachnid when he's finished with the waterspout. A variety of farm animals becomes involved with the acrobatic spider as he gets tossed from snout to tail to wing while making his high-flying way home. The song/finger play stumbles a bit with an uneven tempo and words that should rhyme but don't, such as farm/barn and funny/mommy. Bright, cheerful illustrations are the highlight of this bumpy verse. Flying insects, animal sounds, and the tangible silver glitter of the spider's silk fill the pages. Stick with Mary Ann Hoberman's adaptation of The Eensy-Weensy Spider (Little, Brown, 2000) for a more polished story of the escapades of this indomitable eight-legged critter.–Maryann H.
