book about spiders and what they see from their eyes
  Lauralee96 | Sep 17, 2017 |
A young boy stops to watch a tiny yellow spider spin her web. The spider crawls along the delicate silken threads, sometimes hanging, sometimes spinning, sometimes staring back... Great use of words to paint a picture in one's mind.

This one seemed pretty airy-fairy under the cold fluorescent lights of the library but last night when we were tired and cranky at quarter to one it was soothing and apposite. ( )

Spiders creep me out, but this one was cute. the illustration drew me to the book and I was not let down. Great book to read at bedtime. ( )

This is simple story of a boy who closely examines and kind of befriends a yellow orb spider. His observations are eloquently noted and some figurative language is used. The spider builds and rebuilds her amazing web. The boy goes home with fond memories of the spider and alludes to her in his dreams. There is a quality end note with many facts about spiders. The illustrations are beautiful. This could start of a science unit on spiders of bugs. Best used with elementary or middle school. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0152009442, Hardcover)

"So tiny, yet the closer you look, the bigger she gets" perfectly captures Dream Weaver, Jonathan London and illustrator Rocco Baviera's evocative, hypnotic picture book about a little boy watching a tiny yellow spider, in the up-close-and-personal vein of Verdi and Stellaluna. If you're quiet and you really listen, can you hear the spider's feet on the sparkling web? Baviera's ultramagnified, crayon-pencil illustrations make you feel like it might be possible. The spider's web shimmers with the slightest wind, and a "raindrop on a fallen leaf is a forest pool." Magically, this talented pair manages to make the little yellow spider's webbed world soothing bedtime fare--the young boy goes home from spider gazing to dream about weaving a web of his own to catch fallen stars and return them to the night sky. (Great read aloud, ages 4 to 8) --Karin Snelson

While walking on a mountain path, a young boy discovers a yellow spider spinning her web and as he quietly watches her, he sees the world from a different perspective.
