Format: Paperback
I don't know how the un-Jewish concept of a spider family became the mechanism for a series of books about Jewish holidays but my kids and their friends love them.

In these books Sammy observes the human family and asks his mother what they are doing. The mother always seems to have the answer even if it doesn't concern spiders (they just spin webs). This time Sammy is watching the family getting ready for a Purim celebration. Sammy is full of questions and tends to ask them very loudly. At one point Sammy even needs to be rescued by his mother.

This is a book of noises but they are not your typical children's book noises. There is more about this holiday in the book than in the Tu B'Shevat volume but only the superficial symbols. There is a short version of the story of Purim included at the end of the book but it is very basic and simple. Still, my children (six and under) did find the book entertaining.

My two-year-old daughter LOVES this book! She really enjoys joining in for the repetitive lines, "Mother!" and "Spiders spin webs!" The book also does a good job teaching about the preparation for the holiday, e.g., baking hamantaschen, making a costume. The human boy in the story makes a grogger out of a paper plate and buttons and my daughter and I followed the suggestion and made the same ones ourselves and they were a big hit during megillah reading. I've just ordered some of the other Sammy Spider books and I'm hoping they'll be as good as this one. I highly recommend it.

Sammy Spider wants to go to Synagogue when he sees Josh creating his costume. Of course, Sammy's mother doesn't think he should go because he is a spider and spiders spin webs. When Sammy sees Mrs. Shapiro making hamantaschen, he wants to make some too. But of course, he is reminded by his mother that spiders spin webs. Sammy watches as Josh makes his grogger. When it is time for josh to leave for the celebration, Sammy finds himself trapped inside the grogger. How will he ever get out?

Children will enjoy another lesson learned adventure with Sammy the spider. Colorful swatches, geometric shapes and simple sentences makes this story an easy read and fun to look at. Children will also learn basic part of the Purim celebration.

Purim is to Jews as Halloween is to American kids as both require costurmes. BUT, Purim celebrates the saving of the Jews from desctruction by Queen Ester who pleads for her people before the king whose henchman, Haman, wants to destroy the Jews.
