It is Josh Shapiro's first day of preschool. Sammy Spider, who lives with his family in the Shapiro's house, wants to go with Josh. Mrs. Spider says that Sammy is silly because spiders don't go to school. However, Sammy sneaks into Josh's backpack. Sammy gets to listen to a story about Noah's ark, hear the children tell about their pets, and watch them as they learn about kindness to animals. He does not go outside with the children to the bird feeder because, well we know that some birds like to eat spiders! When they return, he crawls near Josh, but some of the children who are afraid of spiders see him and want to step on him. What will happen to Sammy? Will anyone save him? This is the eleventh book in the Sammy Spider series that includes Sammy Spider's First Passover and Sammy Spider's First Shabbat. Sammy Spider's First Trip to Israel was named a Sydney Taylor Honor book by the Association of Jewish Libraries. In Sammy Spider's First Day of School, author Sylvia Rouss tells a really cute story, augmented by Katherine Kahn's colorful, stylized illustrations, that will appeal to all children, especially those who might be getting ready for their first day of school. Parents, both Jewish and otherwise, will appreciate the lesson on kindness to animals. We need to remember that even spiders have their place in God's order because they keep down other vermin which could be dangerous to humans. It was a pleasure to read and review.
