Publisher Description

A spider, blown by the wind to a fence post near a farm yard, begins to build her web and cannot be distracted from the task at hand--not by the horse, cow, sheep, goat, or dog. But when the rooster asks if she wants to catch a pesky fly, the busy spider is able to catch it in her web immediately! "A beautifully executed work for the very young that satisfies the needs of both visually handicapped and sighted children without losing its artistic integrity."           The Horn Book, starred review. "Both sighted and blind children will follow the action with ease . . . Visually and verbally, this is a winner."          Booklist, starred review.
