From School Library Journal
PreS–An exuberant CD accompanies Iza Trapani's 1993 picture book, which builds on the classic song to take the Itsy Bitsy Spider on an adventure through a house, climbing up walls, buckets, and chairs, and facing setbacks such as fans, mice, and cats, until she finally climbs high into a tree to spin her web and enjoy a much-deserved rest in the sun. The CD's first track features an introduction by the author; on track 2, a group of kids join her in a joyful sing-along of the book, with appropriately placed musical breaks for page turns. The cheery music is a perfect match for Trapani's vibrant illustrations. Track 3 is a straight read-along performed very expressively by Valerie Stephens with page-turn signals and musical sound effects. A delightful twist on the usual read-along.–Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Maryland School for the Deaf, Columbia
