A merry Christmas twist on the favorite nursery rhyme “The Itsy Bitsy Spider”! The itsy bitsy reindeer worked up in Santa’s shop, helping the elves to do their Christmas job. Building the toys and singing songs of joy, as they wrapped all of the presents for every girl and boy. The itsy bitsy reindeer spreads holiday cheer as he helps Santa’s Workshop get ready for Christmas. Little ones will love this fresh holiday spin on the classic nursery rhyme, “The Itsy Bitsy Spider”!
Overall, this is a pretty cute board book, and I really enjoy this series overall—fun themed variations on a classic! One of my pet peeves is definitely rhymes that aren’t rhymes (shop… job?) since they throw off reading out loud and this isn’t my favorite in the series.
This book is set to the Itsy Bitsy Spider song so that you can sing along, which is fun and interactive, but the rhyme and the wording didn’t seem to always flow or work perfectly. It’s a cute book with fun illustrations, but probably not one I’d read over and over because of the wording and flow.
