Little Kid Reaction:

Our kindergartner liked the story and loved the CD even more.

Parent Reaction:

The story is a familiar one. Still, it is presented nicely with simple reading and illustrations that complement the theme exactly. The CD is chock full of information related to spiders. We learned a lot, too.

Pros:

The story has life lessons AND educational value. Parents will find the CD a good resource for educating kids about spiders. It's a nice counter-effort to the "yuck" and "eeks" that you normally here.

Cons:

None.
