The Itsy Bitsy Spider: Classic Nursery Rhymes Retold by Joe Rhatigan, Carolina Farias

The Itsy Bitsy Spider is a classic rhyme that I learned in grade school and learned how to mimic a teapot (the nun's idea of a water spout) and the fallen spider while saying the short rhyme.  When I saw this book, I had to read it again and see how they handled it.  This is a lovely book.

Moondance Press and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published February 13th.

The illustrations in this book are outstanding!  So very bright and colorful with whimsical characters.  It was almost more fun to look over the illustrations than to read the simple rhymes.  This would be the perfect gift for any young child to enjoy.  

The rhymes are short and sweet and, if you're not reading it as a bedtime story, you might show your little one how much fun it is to fly.  The worm in this book loves it when the bees carry him along in flight.  

This is a special little book and not just because it held a rhyme from my childhood.  Each page made me smile and there are insects galore shown off here.  They're all cute and fun to look at it.  Just look at that cover.  Who wouldn't like this book?
