Although I'm not a big fan of spiders, I thought this book was absolutely adorable. A clear, simple, very cute story perfect for little ones. Not too religious, either. There's a focus on numbers and colors, and a nice rhythm to the writing. I believe there's also a nice repetition to a certain phrase, which my kinders really dug and learned to repeat after only a few pages.
