Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
This chunky board book joins several others by Jeanette Winter (Hey Diddle Diddle, Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and Rock-A-Bye Baby). The unusual format has each image filling two pages and the book must be held in a vertical position. It works quite well for this nursery rhyme, as the spider climbs up the spout, the rain comes down and washes her out. When the sun appears, the intrepid little spider does it all over again. Another story runs parallel in the pictures--a black bird watches every move, but does not seem too intent on making a meal of the spider. He flies away when a cat appears on the scene. 2000, Red Wagon/Harcourt, Ages 6 mo. to 3, $4.95. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot—Children's Literature
