"My toddler absolutely loves it!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Lovely illustrations and kids love making the noises of the farm animals as you read the book to them. My 2 year old son absolutely loves this book and has demanded it as his bedtime story every night since it arrived – he even sleeps with it!

"Fantastic book - Eric Carle Classic"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Great presentation with tactile web of spider – It rose to the top of the "favourites' book list of my son.


Early one morning a little spider begins to spin her web on a fence post. In this multi-sensory book, children can feel the pictures as well as see them, while they hear or read the easy rhythmic text. Alongside the visual excitement of Eric Carle's vibrant collages of familiar animals is the tactile experience of feeling the spider's web as it grows from a simple line into a complex and beautiful creation - a perfect story for reading aloud and sharing.


"Carle's The Very Busy Spider comes to board book format with the same raised texturing that has thrilled preschoolers for over a decade. The spider busily spins her web while animals invite her to play. Children will have great fun making the animal noises, seeing (and feeling) the web grow, finding the fly on each page, and hearing the satisfying end as the spider falls asleep after her busy day."
