Frank the Seven-legged Spider by Machaele Razi - ADVISABLE

Frank the Seven-legged Spider by Machaele Razi. PICTURE BOOK. Little Bigfoot (Sasquatch Books), 2017. 9781632171283

BUYING ADVISORY: EL (K-3) - ADVISABLE.

AUDIENCE APPEAL: HIGH

Frank is not sure his is a spider still when he wakes up with one leg missing.  He goes on a  hunt for his leg and then with the insight from some ants, realizes he can still do all the things he loves with just seven legs. 

This would be such a fun book to use when teaching little kids about insect types.  We define a spider by its having eight legs, so this book would make for a silly and fun way to introduce the unit.  There is also a fun thread of humor woven through the book, ending with a laugh out loud illustration.
