Illustrated by The Brothers Hilts
Seaver isn’t like his brothers and sisters. They’re orb spiders and they only spin in perfect circles. All of the little spiders spin their webs each night, but Seaver looks up at the stars and finds inspiration. Instead of the smooth circles of his siblings’ webs, Seaver weaves squares and triangles and hexagons! His webs catch many bugs, but his siblings keep telling him that it’s not right for him to weave other shapes. Finally, he builds a web so beautiful that even his siblings can’t deny that other shapes are the way to go!
Seaver the Weaver is a sweet story about being true to yourself no matter what. The illustrations make the spiders friendly and humorous, rather than scary (I’m not a fan of scary spiders!). With all the different shapes in the web, you and your little one can expand shape vocabulary together, as well as learn a thing or two about spiders.
