I almost gave 4 stars instead of 5 because Helen is a cartoony spider instead of more naturalistic however I know some people (me) get The Ick looking at spiders so this is a nice way to learn without manyeyesmanylegsfangs

I’m Team No Spiders but this is a good book for learning and discussing.

What a cute story. Benjy’s family is going on a boat trip but Benjy has to stay behind with the children’s aunt. But Benjy really wants to go, so he stows away. Unfortunately he is on the wrong ship, but he is such a sweet dog, he makes friends anyway. And when the ship returns to port, Benjy finds his family again. A lovely story that stands the test of time.

Love this book! This book is about a spider who was dropped off at the zoo. The spider then goes from exhibit to exhibit making webs, and then eating all the flies bothering the animals. The spider is thanked by the animals, but the zoo keeper doesn't like the cobwebs in the exhibit and demands they are cleaned. When the cobwebs are gone, the flies come back and bother the animals all over again. Then, everyone learns the importance of spiders! I thought this book was so cute and can be used in a science unit, or even when talking about friendships or different abilities.… (mere)
