Overview

One spinning spider. How do you do? Along comes Sally and that makes TWO. When Sally Spider goes to visit her friends, it all adds up to fun--and increased counting skills for children! It's as simple as 1, 2, 3 and right up to 10. Just take the purple spider with the Velcro backing, and set Sally down on every page so she can join in on every action-packed rhyme. Throughout this interactive game, Sally will peep around doors, play naughty tricks, dance, climb, spin plates, and do other jolly activities. And, these top-hatted, baseball-cap and sunglasses-wearing, colorful spiders are really something to see!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
A spider finger puppet adds a novel twist to this book about addition. Young readers can move Sally Spider from page to page, adding up the spiders as they go. In addition to rhyming text and spiders to point to and count, each page features an equation (4+1=5) showing the numbers involved. The spider puppet has velcro to attach it to the cover. It would have been useful to place a bit of velcro on each page as well so that Sally Spider stays put while the reader pauses to count. The charming watercolor illustrations depict friendly, playful spiders. Ten Buzzy Bees by the same author and illustrator uses the same format, less effectively, for a book on subtraction. 1999, David & Charles Children's Books, Ages 4 to 6, $10.95.
