From the creators of Skinnamarink comes another picture book based on the classic counting song made famous by this beloved trio of children's entertainers.
One elephant went out to play upon a spider's web one day.
She had such enormous fun, that she called for her baby elephant to come.
Sharon, Lois and Bram invite readers to join them in a musical story about a magical spider web. Jungle animals and kids in costume join in the fun on the web, including a glamorous giraffe, a cranky crocodile, a silly, smiley snake and five monkeys.

Through Qin Leng's wonderfully whimsical illustrations, this delightful picture book tells the story of a diverse group of children coming together in play and song.
