Every young child should be introduced to this story, as great a classic as its predecessor The Very Hungry Caterpillar. This colourful picture book describes a spider's day. Blown onto a farmyard fence, she starts to spin a web. The other animals ask if she wants to play, but in every case "The spider didn't answer. She was very busy spinning her web." The book is "touchable:" the strands of web and other elements are embossed onto the page and you can follow them with your fingertips. But the best thing by far is Carle's familiar--but still breathtaking--skill as an illustrator; his cow and goat and dog (just to mention three favourites) capture the essence of each animal in a way few artists can hope to approach.
