The Very Busy Spider
The classic story of the busy spider in a touch and feel board book format. Children can feel the delicate lines of the the spider's silky thread on each page, as her web grows and grows.
'I set up this book beside my son's change mat...'
I set up this book beside my son's change mat. He's 4 months old and loves staring at the pictures while I change him and read the story. The cow and rooster are his favourites!
What families say
loved the texture of the pictures
One of the first books I shared with my little girl at about 4 weeks old. She listened to me tell the story and let me help her feel the spider webs. I love the hungry caterpillar but hadn't read this story - love it!
My daughter loves this book - all the different animal sounds. It also has the web and threads raised on each page so it is a good book to feel as well. A very popular book in our house.
The illustrations are lovely as usual from Eric Carle, and the raised spider web adds interest. My son loves making the animal noises all through the book.
love the book and we then made a spider web with wool when her friend came over.
A brilliant book watch out for the fly
We love reading this book together. My daughter loves all the animals and we do different voices for them to go with their sounds. She also likes that the spiders web is raised so she can feel it.
This is one of my daughters favourites, it's always one of the ones in her pile books to take to her reading tent.
