When cold winds whoosh through Ladybugland, I like books about far away places. This story is far away in Ghana and long ago! It is about two weavers who make beautiful cloth. One of the best parts happens at night, when they find a spider’s web “glowing like moonbeams against the night sky.” Now, these weavers have never seen a web before, but they know it is a masterpiece! What do you think they will do with it?
This story tells you what can happen when you take a very close look at a bug. Excuse me, I have to go stare at Muddle and Thud now!
