The book is about a young spider that gets blown out of an open window whilst playing high up in a barn. He ends up being blown unto one animal to another until he is eventually blown back to his mother’s web.

The sentences are written in a rhyming manner, and the book contains lots of visuals. I personally don’t like the book as in contains many words that some children may find difficult (e.g. catapulted, gust, clumps etc). Obviously, one can pre-teach these words beforehand. I guess this book

The Itsy Bitsy Spider book takes a new twist on the song. The illustrator really nailed how to keep the attention of the children with the glitter line following where the spider goes. This book talks about different animals and what they say and sound like. My only negative is that it says a black and white cow however the cow is painted with blue spots not black. This is one of my favorite books and a great vocabulary building book.

Learning Experience:
*Have animals printed and laminated on pop

Another version of the traditional rhyme this one has Itsy being blown all over the farm and landing on lots of different animals.

Little ones will love the glitter and sparkle on the pages and the different textures in the book.

For added fun be sure to sing the verses - not just read them.
This book is a teensy bit long for lapsit, but it still works because they can do the animal noises. And the adults love the end when he ends up back with mommy.
Funny verses with lovely illustrations. Can sing to the nursery rhyme.

Good story. Sophia enjoyed this book as she loves farms and animals.
This is an Itsy Bitsy Spider on the farm. The story goes through different farm animals as the spider lands on each, with each animal sound given as they each expell the spider from being near them. It's a cute rhyming story with the spider ending up at home in its web. Good for storytime, getting the kids to guess what sound the animal will make. Pictures are also bright and colorful.

Description: Goes along with the incy wincy spider song as the spider meets a variety of animals.

Themes: singing, animals, bugs

Great features: great pictures! funny story, very interactive.

Red flags: none

Opportunity for interaction: kids can say a lot of sound effects and predict the sounds each animal will make.
Colorful pictures for kids to look at. Repetitive story line, but has cute illustrstions. This story is about a spider who gets tangled up with every friend he encounters. This book has other animals which allows kids to figure out what sound they make.
Not the song "Itsy Bitsy Spider." Baby spider gets blown out the window and moves through the barnyard animals until finally landing on mom's web. Cool sparkly effects for web.
This version has a sparkly thread going through the book and pages are very sturdy
The wind blows Itsy Bitsy Spider to a day of adventure among various farm animals.

New twist on the classic itsy bitsy spider. This book is repetitive and allows students to see the pictures of different animals. Very colorful fun illustrations.
Introducing our earth alien—the spider! This version features a raised glittery thread from which the spider swings and lots of ‘bling’ on every page.
Great story to use for letter sound association! W's and s's would be the best letters for this because they occur frequently.
Nicole Flores
This is a book of the story of the itsy bitsy spider. This really cute and appropriate for children in pre- k and kidergarten.

Bought this for a nephew for his birthday! cute story about how the incy wincy spider gets back home.
Cute book to sing. It's especially fun to follow the spider's glittery drag line through the book.
A very fun book for preschoolers. easily sung to the tune of 'the itsy bitsy spider'.
good book to use to introduce letter sound association especially to Pre-k to 1st
This isn't really like the traditional song. I wasn't impressed by this book.
