The Very Busy Spider




A book to feel as well as to read, this bestselling companion title to The Very Hungry Caterpillar appears in paperback for the first time.

Early one morning a little spider begins to spin her web on a fencepost and she doesn't stop until it is finished . . .

Alongside the visual excitement of Eric Carle's vibrant collages of familiar animals is the tactile experience of feeling the spider's web as it grows from a simple line into a complex and beautiful creation -a perfect story for reading aloud and sharing.
