Miles reads a story before bed and feels something crawling on his leg. It’s a spider! Miles is scared but realizes after a while that there is nothing to be afraid of. Slowly Miles realizes that the spider isn’t scary and lets it sleep in his bed, as long as the spider doesn’t bite.
There’s a Spider in My Bed is a fantastic children’s book that shows readers that they don’t have to kill spiders, as long as there is no danger. Children can often be very afraid of spiders. This book does a great job of reflecting those fears at the beginning of the book so that kids can relate, and then slowly eliminating that fear by showing the spider as harmless and afraid in its own right. This charming narrative can help children overcome their fear and start to appreciate insects for what they are, and even see them as friends.
Each page of this vivid children’s book contains an exquisite illustration that uses shades of blue to create shadows in beautiful ways. The scenery captures what it’s like at night in our bedrooms, where we can only see the outline of things. I especially loved how the spider was drawn. It was a perfect mix of being a little scary but cute.
There’s a Spider in My Bed is the perfect kid’s book to read before bed so that children won’t be afraid of the dark, or any creepy crawlies that might be around. The flowing rhymes will keep children engaged and help early readers build their reading skills and vocabulary.
