Is It Any Good?

The first Miss Spider app was phenomenal, and while this sequel, MISS SPIDER'S BEDTIME STORY, is not quite as good, there is still a lot to enjoy here. Once again, you get a read-along storybook and a fully animated video of the same story. This time the video is an episode from the Miss Spider television series. The book reads like an abridged adaptation of that cartoon plot and is somewhat difficult to follow if you haven't already watched the video. Also, the interactive hot spots in the storybook sometimes require several taps before they work properly. The bonus art and game features are all great; this would be a good app even without the storybook element.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
