The beautiful illustrations make a simple nursery rhyme into a wonderful story. I love the art of Iza Trapani. ( )

This all-new itsy bitsy spider has exciting encounters with a fan, a mouse, a rocking chair, a cat and a big maple tree. Finally, the itsy bitsy spider finds a lovely spot to rest and spin a new silky web. Children will enjoy time and again the delightful adventures of the energetic itsy bitsy spider. Fun sing aloud.

continuation of itsy bitsy spider song

The Itsy Bitsy Spider is a wonderful expansion to the beloved nursery rhyme. The spider finds new adventures with a mouse, a cat and some squirrels and birds. Finally the spider spins a silky web to rest in with the warm sun.

Personal Reflection:
I love how this book takes a beloved childhood song and expanse on it. This book is a must add for all home libraries. The illustrations are amazing and fun filled.

Classroom Extension Ideas:
1. Making spiders from food could be used for snack. The body of the spider is an oreo cookie and the legs are pretzel sticks.
2. Give children a piece of construction paper and have them draw a spider web. Have them use temper paint to place a hand print in the middle of the web and decorate the hand as the spider.
