7th in a series of successful educational books for children, Mice & Spiders & Webs...Oh My! is a rhyming story about learning to be a good listener. Rosemary is a school child who tells her mother she is afraid to go to school, only to discover...a new surprise, computers that speak. Integrated into the illustrations are pictures of some of the author's other books. The special notes page also repeats special computer terms used and asks the reader, Are you a good listener?...a winner for children age 6 and up, with plenty of humor and action to keep attention riveted. - Midwest Book Review
I love Sherrill Cannon's style. She is an absolute master of rhyming... Mice & Spiders & Webs... Oh My! features a wonderful rhyming tale with an important underlying message about "being a good listener". As an added bonus, the book also features bright and kid-friendly illustrations with cameo appearances of characters and covers from previous books. I highly recommend this (and other books by Sherrill S. Cannon) for children ages 4 to 8 years. - MotherDaughterBookReviews

In this charming, eloquently rhymed story, Rosie tells her mom that she doesn't want to go back to school because there will be mice, spiders & spider webs. I wouldn't want to either!!! Yuck!
Sherrill, once again, expertly weaves a beautiful tale packed full of life lessons that teaches without preaching. Kalpart' illustration are beautiful and bright.
In Mice & Spiders & Webs … Oh My!, the reader is introduced to Rosemary who comes home from school distressed after her teacher tells the students that a mouse and a spider are soon coming to the class. Or at least, that’s what Rosemary HEARD the teacher say. In order to put her daughter’s mind at ease, Rosemary’s mother takes her to see the teacher who explains exactly what was said. Turns out that Rosemary had not listened very carefully to her teacher; but, you’ll have to read the story to discover what the teacher actually said (definitely worth a chuckle!)
I love Sherrill Cannon’s style. She is an absolute master of rhyming (no, seriously, I don’t know how she does it!). Each story features a relatable main character who is always a young girl or boy the same age as the target audience. There is always an important message underlying the story (in this case, about being a good listener) and the illustrations are so kid-friendly. In true Cannon style, the illustrations feature characters from previous books as well as the covers from her other books in the background. I love this added element of “hide-and-seek”. It’s value-added for true Sherrill Cannon fans.
My Bottom Line: Mice & Spiders & Webs… Oh My! features a wonderful rhyming tale with an important underlying message about “being a good listener”.Read more ›
I felt Rosie’s pain and fear at the prospect of facing her fears of Mice, Spiders, and yes Spider Webs. I knew her bravery when with the help of her mother was willing to face her fears and attempt to work through them. And I laughed at the outcome, down to the ‘female’s only.'
Never have I read a little book that charmed me so, with a message so subtly written that shows how one’s fears can be baseless.
Ms. Cannon has definitely another hit on her hands and one that I wouldn't be surprised if it stole the hearts of each and every child who read it.
It is more than a teaching tool, more than a fascinating story, and much more than the cleverly done rhyming verse that is so popular for the young ones. It is a masterpiece, fit to join the ranks of any of the great children’s stories that have enchanted and delighted generations of young ones through the years.
If this reader whose childhood is so far behind them can find the joy and beauty in this little story, my bet is any child will also find all that and more.
The Illustrations by Kalpart, completely swept me away with the brilliant colors and how they followed the story so completely.
So highly do I consider this book that I fully intend to have a copy of my own. Not just for the little ones, but for those times I wish to laugh and remember those fears and pleasures from my childhood.
Rosemary is very worried about going to school after her teachers latest announcement. It seems the class is going to be getting mice and spiders and the only ones effected by these scary critters are the females. Rosemary's mom begins to think something sounds a little off and decides to speak with the teacher. Will they get to the bottom of the new class activity so Rosemary can return to school?
Of course my favorite aspect of this charming story is the rhyme. This wonderfully versed tale will have children and parents giggling with delight. As most parents know little ones often misinterpret what we say and until we get to the bottom of their confusion they can become frustrated and worried, much like little Rosemary. I adored this fun story and know it will become a fast favorite among readers.
I highly recommend picking up a copy of Mice & Spiders & Webs ... Oh My!
