Mice & Spiders & Webs…Oh My! is a children’s book for kids from kindergarten to third grade written by Sherrill S. Cannon and illustrated by Kalpart. Rosemary has always loved going to school, so her mother is somewhat confused why she’s determined not to go anymore. Rosemary explains that her teacher said that there will be mice and spiders with webs. Even though Rosemary has always wanted a pet, mice and spiders are not really the kinds of pets she wants to have around her. She also thinks it’s really unfair that only the girls in class will have to deal with the new pets. Rosemary’s mom offers to go to class with her and have a talk with her teacher, Ms. Eddy.

Sherrill S. Cannon’s children’s educational book, Mice & Spiders & Webs…Oh My!, is a fun and easy to understand introduction to computers, and it works marvelously. When Rosemary and her mom get to school, they learn that the mouse Rosemary is worried about will help her with the class’s new computer, and that the web is a whole new way for her to communicate with kids in other schools. Cannon’s verse is breezy and smooth, with rhymes that are clever and witty, and Kalpart’s illustrations are bright and cheerful, especially those featuring the mice scampering on the classroom desk and the spider that Rosemary dreads. While the nature and animal geek in me was somewhat disappointed that Mice & Spiders & Webs…Oh My! didn’t feature a tarantula and mice for classroom pets, the techie in me was thrilled with this literate and rhymed primer to computing. Mice & Spiders & Webs…Oh My! is highly recommended.
