Expanding upon the four-line nursery rhyme, storyteller David Novak spins an epic tale as young Itsy prepares to attempt what no spider has done before: scale the water spout. A nervous Mother Bitsy prepares her little Itsy as nourishing lunch; a fly salad sandwich, a bag of grasshopper chips, and a bottle of fresh-squeezed moth juice (100% natural). The result is an epic on a child's scale, in which determination, concentration, and grit are championed. It's a good story to learn when we're young, says Novak, because, well, we face a lot of water spouts when we're growing up.

You'll also hear: A Glass of Water, Mon-Daw-Minth, Jack, The Snake's Disguise, and Betsy and Jason.

    " Itsy Bitsy is one of my absolutely favorite stories by Davig Novak. I love David and used to book him when I was a drama specialist for the Mesa, Arizona Public Schools. I now have a 4 year old grandchild and want her to love David's stories as much as I did. "
