“My son LOVES this book”
My 2 1/2-year-old son couldn't get enough of this book. I read it over and over. It's got great photos and snappy text. Highly recommended. Now I'm looking for more in the series!
Brilliant book. Excellent artwork and will take the fear of spiders away forever with the descriptions. Read this to a group of 3-4 year olds today and they loved it. The pictures show detail down to the most minute feature. Highly recommend.
