Each two-page spread in the book has the story text on one side and a Scripture verse on the other. The verse is supposed to support the text. For example, the text showing Miss Golden-silk getting to work on her web is paired with this verse: “In all the work you are doing, work the best you can. Work as if you were doing it for the Lord, not for people.”
Clark uses a batik process in the illustrations, giving them a cobweb look and feel.
What I Like: The characters are simple but cute. Miss Golden-silk’s look reminds me of the main character in David Kirk’s Miss Spider stories. I also enjoyed the catchy little phrases Miss Golden-silk recites as she fixes her web. The book also includes a free audio book download, which is always a nice perk.
Overall Rating: Good
