The Very Busy Spider

Written by Eric Carle

The spider was working on building his house. The sun was shining. Animals talked to the spider but he didn't answer because he was too busy. In the end, the spider finished her web and the spider caught a bug. The spider tied the bug up and ate it. It took all day to build the web.

This book is special because when you touch it, you can feel the spider's web! The drawings are well made. This book reminds me of The Very Hungry Caterpillar book. It makes me want to learn more about spiders. I have seen big spiders at my house and they made webs so that they will have a house and they can catch bugs.

People should read this book. I think my mom and my dad would like this book. Kids would like this book, too. I like looking at this book again and again.
