Add a few insects (toys of course) from the story, animate the "Where are you?" and "How do you do?" and get the parents to chant that at the right times and you've got yourself a story that works really well.

Simple, cute, explorative.
This is a great book for ECE level readers because it is short and sweet and repetitive. The rhymes make it fun to read aloud and increase phonological awareness skills in children. The pages are also thick, which make them easy for small hands to grasp and turn.
This was great for baby storytime, but it would be even better as a lap-book...when you read, Miss Spider, where are you? your baby could look and find the spider on the page. Mommy and the family dog are on many of the pages, so you can ask baby what they are up to as well. What is Mommy doing? She's watering the flowers. Super to pair with Where is Thumbkin.
