The Eensy Weensy Spider Freaks Out (Big Time)


The Eensy Weensy Spider Freaks Out (Big Time) by Troy Cummings. 2010. May 2010. Random House. 40 pages.

The Eensy Weensy Spider climbed up the waterspout.
Down came the rain and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain...
...and the Eensy Weensy Spider freaked out, big-time!


You may think you know all about the Eensy Weensy Spider. After all, chances are good you've sung about him for years. But what if the Eensy Weensy Spider did NOT go back up the water spout again? What if the Eensy Weensy Spider was too scared to crawl back up the spout? What if he was too anxious to crawl up anything?

What can the Eensy Weensy Spider accomplish with a little help from his friends? Read and see in Troy Cummings The Eensy Weensy Spider Freaks Out! It's a bit silly. It's a bit over-the-top. But it's got a good message.
