  • The Very Busy Spider

  • By Eric Carle

  • Early one morning the wind blew a spider across the field.

  • A thin, silky thread trailed from her body.

  • The spider landed on a fence post near a farm yard

  • and began to spin with her silky thread.

  • Neigh! Neigh!” said the horse. “Want to go for a ride?”

  • The spider didn’t answer. She was very busy spinning her web.

  • Moo! Moo!” said the cow. “Want to eat some grass?”

  • The spider didn’t answer. She was very busy spinning her web.

  • Baa! Baa!” bleated the sheep. “Want to run in the meadow?”

  • The spider didn’t answer. She was very busy spinning her web.

  • Maa! Maa!” said the goat. “Want to jump on the rocks?”

  • The spider didn’t answer. She was very busy spinning her web.

  • Oink! Oink!” grunted the pig. “Want to roll in the mud?”

  • The spider didn’t answer. She was very busy spinning her web.

  • Woof! Woof!” barked the dog. “Want to chase a cat?”

  • The spider didn’t answer. She was very busy spinning her web.

  • Meow! Meow!” cried the cat. “Want to take a nap?”

  • The spider didn’t answer. She was very busy spinning her web.

  • Quack! Quack!” called the duck. “Want to go for a swim?”

  • The spider didn’t answer. She had now finished her web.

  • Cock-a-doodle do!” crowed the rooster. “Want to catch a pesty fly?”

  • And the spider caught the fly in her webjust like that!

  • Whoo? Whoo?” asked the owl. “Who built this beautiful web?”

  • The spider didn’t answer. She had fallen asleep.

  • It had been a very, very busy day.
