With a story that will capture the essence of The Very Busy Spider, Eric Carle gives a new spin to what many of us take for granted- spiders, as well as what they do and how busy they really are. Besides offering a stimulating story line that will capture the imagination, this story offers a glimpse at the life of a spider, and will actually be a great teaching tool that might just leave both children and adults, looking closely at the work a spider does, rather than running away in fear.
The Very Busy Spider is blown onto the farmyard fence, where she decides to begin spinning her web. While other animals try to get her to stop working and play or participate in fun with them, she keeps on working to create a stunning web. This is one of the children’s books that is very touchable and will offer you visual as well as touch stimulation as you try to offer your children a glimpse of a spider’s life, along with a charming and heartwarming story. Some of the web is actually embossed across the pages, so it can easily be touched and followed with your fingers.

With his numerous awards and all the recognition he has received, he continues to offer the best in children’s and infants books.
