We all know the song "The Eensy Weensy Spider" and can sing it on cue, but what happens if the Eensy Weensy Spider doesn’t want to go back up the water spout? The Eensy Weensy Spider Freaks Out by Troy Cummings is the story of what happens when the sun dries up all the rain and the Eensy Weensy Spider does not climb up the water spout again. Eensy Weensy is just too scared to climb the spout again. The next day the story is all over the Web and she is so embarrassed. Her friend the ladybug tries to cheer her up and get her climbing again. First, Eensy climbs a flower pot and realizes that climbing isn’t so bad. Next, the ladybug encourages her to climb a fireplug, and a dog, and then a mail box, and finally back up the water spout! Eensy is so excited she doesn’t want to stop climbing, so she climbs a crane, a hotel, a radio tower, and then to the tip-top of a rocket ship! She realizes that even though she fell down the water spout the world is a big place with lots of places to climb, and even though she fell down she should try again. This is a great twist on an old favorite. See this book listed in out catalog
