This African Tale tells about a time that there were no stories on earth for children to hear. The stories were in the possession of Sky God, so Ananse spun a web to go visit the Sky God. Ananse was told by the Sky God to bring back three specific things in exchange for the stories, but Sky God believed that Ananse would be too weak to follow through. Ananse returned with the things that Sky God requested. Therefore, he was given all of the stories to share with the children. This book is a good lesson not to judge a book by its cover. ( )

This book is a traditional literature, picture storybook appropriate for grades 3-5, with appropriate scaffolding. According to Microsoft Word, the readability of this text is 5.2, meaning that fifth graders in the second month would be able to read this text, ideally.
This is a folklore about the Spider Man in African tales and how he got to be the keeper of all of the stories from the Sky God by outsmarting his opponents. The theme of this story resembles the story of David and Goliath, showing that even the most terrifying opponents can be outsmarted by a wise or determined "small" person.
In the story, the old, small, Anase obtains stories from the Sky God to give to the children of the earth. He must outsmart Osebo, the leopard of-the-terrible-teeth, Mmboro, the hornet who-stings-like-fire, and Mmoatia, the fairy whom-men-never-see in order to have all of the stories of the earth. After capturing all three figures in clever ways, Anase is given the stories of the earth and is given the name of "Spider Man."
After some research, I learned that the book was produced after Gail E. Haley spent a year in the Caribbean researching the African roots of many Caribbean tales. I find this incredibly special and unique, and I would incorporate this into my own lessons if I were to share this with a class.
This requires a bit of higher thought, but would be an excellent piece of traditional literature to share with the class. We could use this book to share with each other our personal stories that have been passed down to us by our family. This would be more of a book to discuss and share with each other, not necessarily do a craft. I would also encourage students to engage in research either online or through other books as a way to see the power of travel and immersion with other cultures and the benefit of understanding others' culture to understand their stories, customs, etc.
4/5. ( )

The story of how Ananse, the Spider man went up to the sky to bargain with Nyame for the stories, and how he paid the seemingly impossible price the sky god wanted by being very, very clever.

Haley’s adaptation of this West African and Caribbean story about the origin of all stories and her colorful woodcut illustrations earned her the 1971 Caldecott Medal for the “most distinguished American picture book for children” published in the previous year. ( )

this African tale is retold by author and illustrator, Gail E. Haley, and recounts the stories from the Sky God about the trickster Anansi, to warn kids on earth to be good. ( )

This picture book tells why African myths and stories are called Spider Stories. It tells of the three trials Anase, the old weak Spider Man, must go through to gain all the stories of the Sky God. He completes his trails through wisdom instead of strength. He is able to pay the price the Sky God demands for his stories and Anase brings them down to Earth and scatters them all over. And they are forever know as “Spider Stories” even if they don’t have anything to do with actual spiders. I really loved this book and read it aloud to my son. He liked it a lot also and pointed out a lot going on in all of the illustrations. When Anase has to capture the Hornet who stings of fire, Hayden noticed one hornet wasn’t yellow but black and white and he predicted that was the Hornet who stings like fire. We didn’t learn if he was right or not because the hornet stays shut inside a calabash, but I bet he was right. ( )
