Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-In this sturdy pop-up version of the classic rhyme, the Itsy Bitsy Spider is a little boy in a baseball cap trying to get home to his mom. Set in a delightfully miniature city where tomato cans are grocery stores and salt shakers look more like condominiums, each spread provides plenty of detail to pore over. The familiarity of the rhyme frees up viewers to become active participants in Itsy Bitsy's journey. Egielski's charming artwork combined with Gene Vosough's paper engineering give surprisingly lifelike movement and dimensionality, making Itsy Bitsy pop out of the water spout and the attic window fly open to reveal a relieved Mama spider. This is a must-have for libraries with special pop-up collections, or anyone who loves superb paper engineering.-Jenna Boles, Washington-Centerville Public Library, OHα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist

Egielski offers up a bright, whimsical pop-up version of many a child’s first learned nursery rhyme: “Itsy Bitsy Spider.” His urban environment is populated by anthropomorphic bugs, with the titular spider being a boy wearing (many legged) overalls, a (many-armed) turtleneck, and a red beanie. What’s most fun here are the houses: there’s a saltshaker, a teakettle, and a mayonnaise jar, and each is charmingly detailed. The six beautifully constructed spreads offer up many perspectives, including the bottom of a drain, as the spider—and lots of water—is evicted, seemingly out of the book. Raindrops, clouds, and a sun with faces add to the charm. That spout is sure to get a workout. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Ann Kelley

The Itsy Bitsy Spider has only 6 pages, but packs so much into those pages. Each of the 6 spreads has a pop up scene with bright colors and many parts. Some of the pages even move to tell the story as the page is opened and closed. For example, for "Down came the rain and washed the spider out", as the book opens the rain drops begin to pop. When the page is 3/4 of the way open, the spider is hidden from view. As the page opens the rest of the way, the pop up parts move in such a way that the spider becomes visible and moves down the page. So, the pages aren't just meant to be viewed in 3D after the page is all the way open, but also tell a narrative while the page is opening because parts move as you open and close the page just a little.

Pop up books are expensive, but they really can be the ultimate luxury of a picture book. This is a good one. Very visual and lots going on on every page.

What a lovely way to being the familiar song to life. Exquisite attention to detail-- the hidden parts of the book are still illustrated. My 2 year old loves it and it is sturdier than many other pop ups.

The book is a nice pop-up and I love pop-ups. Just not too crazy with the spider-people illustratiions. Maybe the illustrator thought a real-looking spider would be too scary. Reasonable I guess.

This book has quickly become my son's new favorite book. The art is amazing and of course, we are all familiar with the song but this book brings it to life in a new entertaining way.
