The very busy spider by Eric Carle

This book is about a spider that spins a web with her silky thread on a fence post near a farmyard.

Different farm animals come along and invite her to go and do different things with them, but the spider does not answer, as she is too busy spinning her web.
‘Neigh! Neigh! Said the horse ‘want to go for a ride?’ But the spider doesn’t answer. She is too busy spinning her web.

This book gives the children the opportunity to learn about different animals, the sounds they make and the activities they do.
I like the idea of the fly in every picture; a hidden message by the author showing that the web is to catch the fly.

Very colourful and tactile illustrations, gives the children the opportunity to see and feel the spider’s web. The book also opens up opportunities for children to work with in the classroom; for example, the concept of hard work and how it pays off, and the process of spinning a web.
