Back to School with Mice and Spiders and Webs…Oh My!

Winner of 5 Awards

Everyone is getting ready for school to resume – whether virtually, in-person, or a combination of the two – and perhaps you might share Mice & Spiders & Webs…Oh My! with your home-schooled or back to class kids..

Winner of 5 Awards, Mice & Spiders & Webs…Oh My! illustrates the importance of being a good listener. It also is a cute  introduction to basic computer terms.

Rosemary is worried about returning to school, after her teacher has warned the class that they would soon have some mice, spiders and webs in the classroom!  What could this mean?

Rosemary has decided that there’s no way she’s returning to THAT…

Will she discover that the “mice” refers to the mouse she will use on the new computer her class is using – and ways to use computers and tablets for learning?

Could it be that “spiders” are only associated with the school webpage that has been added to the curriculum,  and allows communication between students, teachers and friends?

And why only “females”?  Is there discrimination here?

(If you think you know why, please comment on this post!!!)

Mice and Spiders and Webs…Oh My! is a Mystery!

MSW5Mice & Spiders & Webs…Oh My! is not what it seems… Little Rosemary is afraid to go back to school after her teacher has warned the class that they would soon have mice and spiders and webs in the classroom.  Imagining all the worst that could happen – like having smelly mice on her desk, and the kids teasing her because of her fear of spiders – not to mention the idea that only the girls would be subjected to this horrible situation – she discovers that her listening skills need improvement!  Rosemary finds that her class is getting some computers – involving a mouse to control computer input, a joint class “web” project on the internet, and the class is not just for girls…

Here are the closing lines:

“There’s only one question that’s left to explain:

Why just for girls? Why only female?’

Ms. Eddy just smiled and replied, “I said e-mail!”

Winner of 5 Awards, Mice & Spiders & Webs…Oh My! illustrates the importance of being a good listener.  It also is a cute introduction to basic computer terms.  It has won a Global eBook Gold Medal, a Bronze Medal in the FAPA Awards, a Readers’ Favorite H.M. Award, a Reader Views Reviewers Choice H.M, and also a Pinnacle Achievement Award.

Winner of 3 Awards...

Winner of 3 Awards…

Thank you to Miriam Ruff for the nice 5-star review for Mice & Spiders & Webs…Oh My!…

Story and Message Beautifully Rendered5-Stars
By Miriam S. Ruff
This review is from: Mice & Spiders & Webs…Oh My! (Kindle Edition)
A delightful story for children about the importance of listening carefully, as well as a charming introduction to the world of computers. Easy to follow with delightful rhymes and beautiful pictures that entertain while the author carefully inserts her message. Great for children who are afraid of things, as it shows a parent willing to help overcome her child’s fear in the best way she can.
