Funny First World Problems for Pre-K and Kinders

This is a hilarious listen, partly due to the unconventional story (which begins with Spinky’s fit of sulking; the reader never gets to see/know exactly what caused it). The real treat, however, is Meryl Streep, whose can’t-miss narration makes this a delight for preschoolers, kindergarteners and adults alike. My only caveat would be that Spinky will be viewed by some parents as a spoiled kid, over-indulged and almost encouraged in his sulking by his doting, well-meaning but clearly very privileged family.

Still, it’s a winner. Worth the cost of a dollar or two.

Teaches kids to understand their feelings

Meryl Streep is a wonderful narrator. Spinky is sulky and stubborn. But at the end he comes around and everyone is happy again. Another great one from William Steig.
