The Very Busy Spider

By Eric Carle

Published by

Numerous animals want to spend time with Spider, but for the entire book, she is “very busy spinning her web” on the facing pages.  On each page is a tiny fly– the object of her diligent efforts.  Finally, at the end of the day, the spider catches the fly, eats it, and rests for the evening.

Great for beginning readers because they can easily grasp the repetitive language.  Even after just one read, my 4-year-old son was confident enough to “read” the story back to me.
