"Do Spiders capri leggings Need Leggins When It's Cold Outside?" is
a bedtime book full of wonderful silly ideas, stories, sayings,
pictures, and questions. It was inspired by questions asked by author
Terri Sebastian's son Ryan as he was growing up. Sadly, Ryan died
before he reached age 16, but his incredible spirit lives in this
memorable children's book. In addition, Ryan's legacy survives
in the five individuals who received his organ donations. "Do
Spiders Need Leggins When It's Cold Outside?" has an
irrepressible spirit that is fully expressed by the whimsical, colorful
illustrations. Perhaps the best part of the book is at the end, when the
author writes "When you look up at the night sky, remember
Ryan's gifts." Last of all, in her Afterword, she writes,
"Tell your children you love them every day."
