We love The Itsy Bitsy Spider, so this book was a good choice for us. Nice colorful illustrations. The only thing that I don't understand is why a butterfly rescues the spider during the rainstorm. The words of the nursery rhyme say nothing about this, but that butterfly is there on multiple pages and seems to play a big role in the illustrations. Hmmm....

Also, this is neither a positive nor a negative, but as the mother of a little boy who loves the Itsy Bitsy Spider I wonder why all the books

FYI - This book is an illustrated version of the song - it does not depart from the song in any way, shape, or form. That said, the illustrations are nice - I just wish it had expanded upon the song a smidge...

The illustrations were cute. The spider's face, however was getting creepy by the end.
Bright, fun illustrations accompany this picture book version of the popular rhyme.

Also, mad props for using "itsy bitsy" and not "teensy weensy," which is just wrong to me.
The larger size and bright illustrations make this a great choice for a story time program on a "spider-tastic!" theme. Each double-page spread is devoted to one phrase of the song at a time.

"The itsy bitsy spider" (plenty of time for children to enjoy the picture) -- turn page
Climbed up the waterspout (enjoy picture) -- turn page

and so forth. After sharing the book, lead the children in the action song.
Good for younger prek story time but other better choices of the same story for older prek bug story time.
It is a darling children's book. It tells you what happened after she climbed the spout again!
A fun visual interpretation of this traditional text.
Who doesn't love the Itsy Bitsy Spider?!
