Little Miss Spider is packing her pencils and her rule for Sunny Patch school, the best place for little spiders to learn the lessons all bugs ought to know. As she gets ready for her first day of school, she also worries if she'll be able to learn about flowers from petal to root, how to chew tasty leaves, and tunnel through fruit.

The first day of school is one of the most important and shaping times in a child's life. Children will be reassured and enthused by Little Miss Spider's first day when she meets plenty of other many-legged bugs and learns that she already knows the finest lesson of all, the merit of being kind.

Told through David Kirk's simple verse and brilliant oil paintings, Little Miss Spider at Sunny Patch School is published in the new, gorgeous format of books that introduces readers to Miss Spider's early years. With thick glossy pages and a size ideal for small hands to hold, this charming story is sure to warm the hearts of fans everywhere.
