Aaaarrgghh! Spider by Lydia Monks

Aaaaaaargh! Spider!

Are you afraid of spiders?  Aaaarrgghh! Spider is the story of a not-so-scary spider that wishes to become a family pet.  She tries to win the family over by showing them all the things she can do better than traditional household pets.  Initially, her plan doesn’t work, and the family keeps putting her outside.  Eventually, the spider resigns herself to being alone and in doing so finds a way to win the family over.  The catchy refrain and sparkly spider webs add to this fun, family story.  If you prefer snakes to spiders, check out Slithery Jake by Provencher, another fun story about a family who is afraid of their pet.
