Sammy Spider warms his feet by the menorah’s candles each night as he watches Josh and his family eat yummy foods and listens to them sing songs during Hanukkah. Sammy Spider is a little jealous of the dreidels and wants one for himself, but his mother reminds him that “Spiders don’t spin dreidels. Spiders spin webs”. (This part repeats several times and is fun for kids because they catch on and will “read” along with you when you get to that part of the story.) In the end, Sammy Spider’s mom surprises him with a gift that helps Sammy Spider forget about how disappointed he was that he didn’t get to have a dreidel of his own.
