A Scrumptious Treat

From the wonderful imagination of David Kirk

Miss Spider's Tea Party invites children 3 to 7 years old to enter David Kirk's world of color and wonder. Eight games provide hours of fun with a healthy serving of age-appropriate basic skills practice. Miss Spider's friends want to attend her party, but they each have a problem that needs to be resolved. It's up to the child to play the games and help all the friends make it to the party.

When the child succeeds at all eight games, Miss Spider thanks the player warmly with a sweet invitation of their own - something to print and cherish. Each game has an easy, medium and difficult level to challenge all of Miss Spider's fans. With lots of beautiful 3D images and animation, the CD-ROM captures the unique look and feel of the book and will surely broaden and enhance your child's relationship with Miss Spider and her friends.

The Games include:

The Beetles River Cross Game
The Beetles want to attend Miss Spider's party, but they have a wide river to cross. Can you help them get from shore to shore? It's fun - just jump from rock to leaf to tadpole to branch. But don't fall in the water or you'll have to start over!

The Hiding Butterfly Game
The Butterflies want to attend Miss Spider's party, but they must find all their friends. The colorful Butterflies are cleverly hiding in several scenes. Can you find them all so they can come to the party?

The Bee Flower Matching Game
The Bees want to attend Miss Spider's party, but they have to pollinate flowers. Each Bee has a flower in mind. Can you choose the ones they're thinking of so they can finish up and head to the party?

The Crickets Band Game
The Crickets want to attend Miss Spider's party, but they need to form a band. Can you match each musical sound with its instrument? Match the whole band and they'll play you a wonderful tune!

"At first, I wondered if this program would appeal to boys but my own 5 year old put that fear to rest. He immediately recognized the program from the book and was excited to help Miss Spider's friends go to the tea party. The games were challenging but not overwhelming, and he completed the first level in about an hour. Today he's been working on the second level - because he *wants* to! That's the best sort of software around. "

Dallas Morning News , 11/25/99

"Through eight lively games, youngsters help their favorite arachnid pull off the dandiest of teas. Clever activities will engage kids ages 3 to 7 as they help Miss Spider's friends -- beetles, crickets, fireflies, ladybugs, bees and butterflies -- overcome obstacles to join her at the big party. Gorgeous animation and rich 3-D graphics bring this gem to life while staying true to the flavor of the book's artwork. A steal of a price and must for the reader on your list who also enjoys computer time."

Pittsburg Post-Gazette, 12/3/99

"Miss Spider's Tea Party" is what every educational disc should aspire to be. Vividly drawn from the best-selling books by David Kirk, Miss Spider asks for a lot of help from the user to gather guests for a tea party. Each problem solved brings more wild bug friends to the table. The problems, of course, are entertaining games withn the game that teach simple math and reading lessons, with gentle Miss Spider offering her hints or encouragement along the way. This continues to be a preschool favorite.****
