THERE'S A SPIDER IN MY SINK!

THIS IS A BUG BOOK WEEK CHOICE:

"There's a spider in my sink!

Did he drop in from the brink?

Does he want a little drink?

There's a spider in my sink!"


Thus begins this very cute picture ebook young children will love listening to and early readers will enjoy reading on their own.The little boy in the story has a problem? a spider has suddenly taken possession of his sink! What is he to do? How to get rid of it without hurting it? After all, the only thing the spider wants is a safe home. But he has to do something! How will he be able to brush his teeth and comb his hair, when the sink is covered with cobwebs?The story is written in iambic beat and has a smooth, fun rhythm that both children and adults will enjoy. The colorful illustrations are appealing and possess the right touch of wackiness that well suit the story.

*Shudder* I do not like spiders AT ALL but my husband insists on rescuing the things. Perhaps I should pick up this book!

This is one I'll have to get for my grandson. He is always playing "catch my spider" with his mom and me. That means he will use his hand to make a spider climb all over us and we are supposed to catch it. Looks like a cute book.

Looks like a cute book - though it might make me feel a bit guilty about the spiders I've washed down the drain!
