The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Early one morning a little spider is blown across the fields, settles on a fence and begins to spin her web. In turn the farm animals try to tempt her from her work but the little spider keeps on. At the end she proves that her web is both beautiful and useful. A simple, humble story whose development lies in the web itself. The Very Busy Spider is especially valuable for visually-handicapped children.
