Why Little Aristotle's Library Loves It:

The book is wonderful for counting. Each page introduces a new number that opens a doorway for children to scower pages looking for each tea cup or butterfly. It is a very interactive story with colorful images that jump out from every page. Your readers will ask you to seek out the next books so they can read more abou the loveable yellow spider who wants to make friends with her fellow bugs.

"I loved this story when I was little. My mom used to read it to me on rainy days, like in the book, and we'd drink tea together. Sometimes she'd even make treats to go along with the story too." --Amy G. (A Little Library Supporter)
