Incy Wincy Spider
By Pat-a-Cake, Richard Merritt
Incy Wincy Spider combines lively pictures with a classic rhyme that's easy for parents and carers to recognise and recite. Young children will adore searching the page for flaps to open while singing along. The spotting game at the end is a great incentive to go through the pages once again until each tiny thing is found! Nursery Rhymes are important stepping stones to language development. The rhymes usually tell a story, too, with a beginning, a middle and an end. This teaches children that events happen in sequence, and they begin to follow along. Nursery rhymes are also full of repetition making them easy to remember, and often become some of a child's first sentences.Also available: The Wheels on the Bus, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Hey Diddle Diddle, Row, Row, Row Your Boat

Incy Wincy Spider
By Karen Erasmus
We all know that the rain washed the Incy Wincy spider down the water spout. But where else did he try to shelter before the sun came out? In this fun and lively story, Incy tries to find a place to rest - but keeps getting into strife! When he crawls under the house, he comes face to face with a hungry cat. In the living room, he nearly gets sucked up by Gran's vacuum cleaner, and his comfy resting place in the laundry hamper leads to a wet and wild ride in the washing machine. The adventures of this determined little spider are brought to life by Karen Erasmus' brightly coloured and irresistible illustrations.
