Book Review: Mice & Spiders & Webs . . . Oh My!


Mice & Spiders & Webs . . . Oh My! by Sherrill S. Cannon (Author), Kalpart (Illustrator)

Is your child a good listener?

Rosemary is a little girl who is worried about returning to school after her teacher warns the class that they would soon have some mice, spiders, and webs in the classroom. Could Rosemary have misunderstood something?

How can mice and spiders and webs belong at school? Full of “Computer Speak,” this story introduces young readers to basic computer terms in a delightful way! See if your child can discover the mystery of the misunderstood words, and learn about the fun of computers with Rosemary.

This is the seventh rhyming children’s book by this award-winning author, whose other bestselling books include My Fingerpaint Masterpiece, Manner-Man, Gimme-Jimmy, The Magic Word, Peter and the Whimper-Whineys, and Santa’s Birthday Gift.


My Review: This book is very educational in so many ways. First, learning not to jump to conclusion which is a psychological term referred to as a communication obstacle. Rosemary has decided not to go to school because she didn’t like mice, their noise or smell. She was also frightened of spiders and heard her teaching talking about their web. Her mother tried t convince her that they must be a part of a science project. But Rosemary didn’t want anything to do with it.

So her mother promised to talk to her teacher when she drops her off at school. Her mother told Ms Eddy about Rosemary’s fear of mouse and spider webs. Ms Eddy went on to explain to Rosemary and her mother what a computer, mouse and web means.

Teach your kids that before they jump to conclusions, they should make sure they have enough information to be sure they’re right. A must have.


FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.

  1. What a great idea for a book! In today’s computer world, kids need to know what those terms are. It also sounds funny and true because it’s amazing what parents will come and ask us, based on what their kids thought we meant.
