WHEN A SPIDER CAME TO STAY
She appeared one day next to the chair, right there on the floor. She looked strange and didn't speak my language, yet there she was, just looking up at me. I didn't know why.

This is a tale of a young girl who finds a spider in her room. As she watches the spider weaving those intricate webs, each different and so complicated. When food is offered to the Spider, the spider just slowly walks aways. Maybe the spider wants to be able to share the room with the girl. Being different species, the girl and the spider find admiration in each other. The author stuck in a little lesson for our younger readers. Even though we are all different we are all special i n our own ways. When we learn to share, it shows that we care, even if we are different. There's nothing wrong with being different. The illustrations are in vivid colors to grab the younger reader. They fit in with the story. Also at the end of the book, there are some questions and answers about spider and other creatures.
If your little one, girl or boy, are interested in insects, then they need to read or be read to this book. They will love it.
They will want to take it out and read this book time and time again.
I was given a complimentary copy of WHEN A SPIDER CAME TO STAY from the author Rebecca Crosdale for my view of this book. No other compensation took place.
I would give this book 5 SPIDERS.
