    One thought on “Why the Spider Has Long Legs (Folk Tales From Around the World)”

    1. I thought that this story was funny. The spider couldn't catch it's own food, so he asked his friends for help catching food. Since he asked so many friends to catch food for him, they stretched his legs out because it was all ready at the same time. His friends were pulling in all different directions. A message that I got from the book was to not be greedy or that you need to work hard for what you want.

    2. Why the Spider Has Long Legs is a good reminder to us that you usually have to work for what you want. This story was very, very creative and the illustrations were phenomenal. It also shows that you shouldn't be to greedy or you won't get what you want. Overall, this was an alright book but probably won't be one that I would get for my future classroom.

    3. I feel this book has a good message for children. It teaches children the lesson of patience, along with teaching them not to spread themselves too thin. If you make too many plans, you will be in a bind, because you will have too much to do. It also teaches children about being greedy and wanting everything they can get their hands on.

    4. This is an African folktale about a spider who was very hungry. He went to see all of his animal friends and left a part of his web with them and they would pull it when food was ready. His friends ended up pulling his strings all at the same time which made his legs grow long. The lesson from this story is to work for the things you want. It also warns you not to be greedy.

    5. This African Folktale teachers a great lesson at the end of the book, you have to work to get what you want and don't get too greedy. Part of the story "explains" why spiders have long legs and not short ones. I really enjoyed the illustrations in this book.

    6. It reminded me a lot of the tales of the tricky fox. A cute little spider (which almost never happens!) is a little lazy and tries to take advantage of some of his friends for an easy meal. A fun story about working hard for children to read. It also has wonderful illustrations.

    7. This old African folk tale is a great way to teach children about other cultures, and to bring halloween into the classroom.

    8. Nancy the Spider shows impatience and would not wait for food. The moral of the story is to be patient. A nancy is about tricksters

    9. This is a cute folktale about why spiders have long legs. It teaches that it is never a good idea to be greedy. And it also teaches about patience.

    10. An African folk tale. It has really cute pictures. It is also a funny story. Really simple story but gives a good lesson.

    11. This folk tale teaches readers that you shouldn't be greedy and that you must work for what you want and need. This can help young readers to be patient and ambitious from an early age. It is also a good example of a Folk Tale that can apply to anyone around the world.

    12. This book is another that is good at teaching a lesson to kids without them knowing that they are being taught something. This book teaches kids that they have to work to get what they want and this is taught to them by a greedy, lazy little spider. After the spiders legs were stretched he could do things for himself without having other people do it for him.

    13. I think this is a good book to keep in the classroom library. It is a different kind of writing, and I think it is important that students be familiar with different types of writing. This would also be a good book to use when discussing different cultures.
