The first day at spindergarten includes nods to other children's rhymes and songs with spiders as Itzy tries to spin a web to catch a fly and show everyone he's no longer a spiderling. A good pick for children who are nervous about starting school, and to learn about how names and nicknames can be hard to change when one wants to take back control over their identity.

We all know the Itzy Bitzy spider went up the waterspout-- but WHY? This and other burning questions concerning Miss Muffet and a certain old lady are answered in this great story about how Itzy loses his nickname.
