SPIDER May-June 2018
Cover art by Marc-Etienne Peintre
Spider is always the cat’s me-yow but this pet-filled edition is simply purrrrfect. Your kids will get to know cats and dogs, fish and hogs – well, a piggy bank anyway.
There’s a long standing debate on which pets are better: dogs or cats. For those who are down with dogs, this edition of SPIDER magazine has a story about a dog who is out of this world, a poem about dogs, and an engaging dog puzzle your kids can play with. For those who are in the cat’s corner, this edition of SPIDER magazine has a hands-on cat toy craft you can create, a Japanese Folktale focused on felines, and a cute cat cover. If you don’t like either, you’ll also discover fun articles, stories and more featuring fish, beavers, a recipe for Oishi Omurice, and more. As to which pet is better, we vote for the T-Rex.
