    A favorite in my house!

    My 2 year old loves everything spiders, she will dig past all the typical 2 year old books in her stack to run this one to me yelling "Spider momma! Spider!" I think this is one of, if not the favorite book she has, it's cute and she points to the spider(s) on every page!

    Spiders, ARGH!

    Aaaarrgghh! Spider is a clever book written from a spider's perspective. The spider wants to be a pet spider in a specific home to a specific family. When this family sees the spider they scream and put the spider outside as they say, "Out you go!" The spider tries to show that it could be a better pet then their dog or cat, but it keeps getting put outside so it decides to stay out in the backyard. The spider starts to spin his web in the yard will have to read the story to find out what is in store for this spider and the family he wants to live with.
    My preschool students would absolutely love this book. I say this for a number of reasons.
    1. All the children know that I don't like spiders and I always scream when I see one.
    2. The book repeats phrases, so the children can pick up on this.
    3. My preschoolers love to talk about their pets, whether real or not.
    4. The spider spins glitter webs that they would think were so cool.
    5. There is some humor that they would be able to pick up on and understand throughout the book.
    These are only some of the reasons I came up with, but I am sure there would be more.
    The only negative about this book is that the illustrations have no diversity. The family is made up of a mom, dad, son, daughter who all appear to be Caucasian, who live with their cat & their dog. There are also some stereotypical sex roles in the book; the mother is the one cleaning the bathroom, the father is the one driving the car and the mother is the one pushing the grocery cart. This can be alright for a few books, but I would have to find books with more diverse races and family structures along with illustrations that show less stereotypical female and male roles to represent the different students and families in my class and beyond.
