Can Anansi’s six sons save him from trouble?

The book Anansi the Spider by Gerald McDermott is one my all time favorites to read aloud to kids, to perform, and to use during teacher trainings.  A great folktale, bold captivating illustrations, and a compelling story make this tale from Ashanti a sure fire hit in any classroom.  After reading, make spider masks in the style of the story illustrations and perform a retelling.
