"My Spider Is Scared of Children" is written by Jolee Ward. This book was created for children as a fable rhyming picture book. Colorful and humorous illustrations are there to match the emotions and actions of the storyline within the book. It is the story of a troubled spider not wanting to leave the comfort of his human friend's bedroom. The spider has a fear and anxiety or uncomfortable feelings that go along with that fear, afraid that children at school would hurt him, accidentally. With help from his best friend and his friend's mom, he is able to overcome the troubling emotions he has been experiencing. The story is told from the perspective of and in the voice of all the characters including the spider. The spider has its own voice and feelings in my opinion
We can classify this book as a self help resource tool for children. Many children relate to and confide in their pets when they have problems. This story may help children cope with fears and troubles knowing they may be able to do just as the spider had done, confide in family and friends. I enjoyed reading this book and sharing it with my own children. I often share the children's books I read to my own children. I have my own opinions on them but of course the target readers of this book are children. If the book impresses my own children leaving them to discuss, on their own, the happenings of the book, I am sure it will have the same effect on other children who read it or have it read to them. Great work Jolee Ward.
