A lovely bedtime book that teaches the importance of numbers.
on 10 August 2018
Spinderella's another one of Julia Donaldson's books that has a hidden message for the kiddies: This one is all about how numbers are important, and you can use them to solve problems, and ensure that everyone has a fair slice of the pie.
The story revolves around little Spinderella, a spider who lives in a school, and is curious about numbers. Her family don't care about numbers, but Spinderella wishes hard to know more, and her Hairy Godmother (yes, you read that right), appears, and helps her to learn to count.
It's a wonderful bedtime story, and there's lots of "ewwwww!" moments as the spiders eat flies, and lots of great pages where you can count with the kids, and see the numbers visually. Also, the story has lots of kids in it, which always appeals.
