Format: Board book
This is a beautifully illustrated board book. My 10-month-old son picks it out of his book bag again and again. He loves to turn the pages and runs his fingers over many of the pictures as if trying to pluck the items off the page. My personal favorite is number 8 (butterflies hiding in a gorgeous bouquet of flowers), but my son seems to prefer the four rubber bugs.
Another feature that I like about it is that the numbers go up to twelve. So many counting books end at ten; this is a welcome change. The only negative thing I can come up with is that it is sometimes a bit challenging to find the identified number of things listed in the illustration, but I think that will be part of the fun for my son as he gets a bit older.

What's really interesting about this book is the art work. Your child would be mesmerized with the vibrant colors, beautiful and detailed artwork. These elements work to get your child interested in the book. What's more, there's a simple story that goes with it which makes the book fun to read. Eventually, your children will learn to count after reading the book over and over and over again. (You know kids, once they like a book, they'll ask you to read it for umpteen times!). Thus, our intention of wanting them to learn or wanting to introduce them to numbers is finally achieved. It is done subconsciusly, which is good, coz we don't want them to feel stress out. The interest just comes along on its own without us forcing it through.

This is a wonderful book. I have been reading it to my 2 3/4 son for the past year and he loves it. The book is full of wonderfully colored illustrations that are very eye catching. My only complaint is that some of the pages are very busy which makes it difficult to find and count some of the insects. But, this is a minor complaint.

I thought this would be a new book. Instead it reuses images from the original Miss Spider's Tea Party and this book just reiterates the numbers from the original book. My little one loves the the books because of their illustrations. I am returning this book because we have the other ones and this one does not benefit our collection.

I do not recommend this version. The original has the numbers in it as well.

I was so thrilled to find Miss Spider in a BOARD BOOK! This book works wonders in keeping my 8 month old quietly entertained during church. She loves looking at the brightly colored illustrations. I should also mention the excellent durablity of this book easily stands up to a child this age. Love the book!

My daughter loves the original version of this book but we had a hardback and I wanted a board book that she could use and not destroy too badly. The pictures are the same but the story is limited to one line per page. Kind of disappointed that it's not the full one. It's Miss Spider's Tea Party Lite.

Miss Spider's Tea Party: The Counting Book, is a favorite of my 10 month old. I have been reading it to her since she was 6 months old. It is by far her favorite among all of her board books. She is captivated by the vivid art work and loves the rhythm of the story. I was so pleased with it that I bought it for my 2 year old niece. It has become her favorite. The board book stands up to wear and tear. I highly recommend this book all the way around!

My 6 month old has liked this book since he was 4 months old. Now his face lights up with a big smile when I pull it out. Sometimes he even starts to fuss when I put it away! The illustrations are just so vibrant and colorful that he's mesmerized by it. I really really wish I could find more books like this. I've looked everywhere! This is definitely a best buy for parents who want to start reading to baby at an early age.
