I believe children will enjoy reading this story, although I have mixed feelings about the book. I appreciate that the story teaches its intended audience the power of words and the consequences that follow those words. I also appreciate the unique friendship between the pig and spider. However, I had issues with the lack of communication between several characters. Had the grandmother just put her pride aside and allowed her husband and daughter to talk to her,Archie and his grandfather would not have felt compelled to run away when their feet began to stink after they ate her stinkbug candy. Had the horse and cow families just communicated to Archie that he needed to take a bath, the young spider would not have felt compelled to continue his quest to find a family that accepts him.Read more ›
My opinion of this story is that it was really good and kept my attention the whole time. I thought it was pretty funny how the grandmother swore that she didn't candy any stinkbugs but in the end that's what the problem was with the little spiders smell.
I think this story could benefit someone who is bullied or picked on by other people. It could show them that no matter what everyone else thinks there's someone out there who will accept you for who you really are. It could teach them that not everybody will judge you by the way you smell or the way you dress or look.
I rate this book four stars.
Reading this book mad me feel sad because he was made fun of by his own family yet it keep me wanting to read more because he was journeying out on an adventure on his own knowing of the dangers that he will encounter in this big new world.The biggest thing I learned from reading this is friendship. No matter what you look like, how you act or even what you do, a friend will accept for who you are.
The reason I gave this book five stars is that it is a great book for kids who are maturing and growing up and looking for a new challenge. This book will give them a sense of accomplishment when they finish a chapter. This book will also help them develop a sense of imagination because there are very few pictures in the book. This book also teaches children about the importance of hygiene in a very safe way without discriminating kids who do stink.
Although this book is somewhat sad, it teaches children valuable life lessons about hygiene and how adventurous one can be. I liked this book because it requires the user to use their own imagination because there are not many pictures within the story, and it causes you to paint your own picture of what is happening. I would recommend this book to young readers who are trying to expand their vocabulary as it is quite lengthy for a younger reader. The great thing about this book is that it is a chapter book, and it will give young readers a great satisfaction knowing they completed all the chapters when they finished. I rated this book a five because I enjoyed the book and it had a good flow, and I feel that it teaches a big lesson at a young age.
