Description

The classic nursery rhyme . . . now the beginning of a sweet and silly rhyming adventure for toddlers!

Everyone loves and remembers nursery rhymes from their childhood. Each book in this series begins with a classic nursery rhyme, and then expands on it with lots of silly fun. 

Itsy Bitsy Spider is a classic nursery rhyme that children have been reading and enjoying for at least a hundred years. And even though there are other versions available in book form, this enormously entertaining edition turns the rhyme into a frolicking adventure featuring Itsy and many of his insect friends. 

Follow along as, once the sun comes back up for Itsy Bitsy, his caterpillar friends play leap frog in the trees, ladybugs play hide-and-seek, a beetle builds a swimming pool for his ant friends, and busy bees jump rope with a worm. There are giggles a-plenty as each turn of the page offers new surprises and super-silly situations. Share this re-imagining of the classic nursery rhyme with your children and make memories to last a lifetime.
