4 EXCELLENT BOOK FOR PRE-SCHOOLERSRavenDarkholme | 04/08/2009 | See all RavenDarkholme's reviews (6)Both my children have loved this book since about 10-11months. I suppose it could be frightening if you over exaggerate the last page (a big funny looking spider pops out at you) but if you make it more of a joke then in my experience kids find it much more funny than scary. My older child in particular loves spiders and this book encouraged his love of bugs rather than made him scared of them. The touchy feely bits are great and lovely illustrations. The only reason this hasnt got 5 stars is the spider is a bit too flimsy and mine needs reparing all the time when little hands try to grab it!!! Your child will love this book and you will have fun reading it to them. Throughly recommended.
