Would crazy glue work?

I have a question about a crack in the body of an acoustic guitar.

I bought an acoustic/electric with a 9volt preamp/equalizer. It is made by some company I've never heard of called Estaban.
I had no intention of buying a guitar today, but I got this one for $35. I'm going to give it to My daughter for Christmas.
All of the electronics work, and it doesn't sound half bad, even with very old strings on it.
My question is this: I got it for $35 because it has a 3.5 inch crack in the body, on top, starting about two inches from the bridge and running south. So basically, it is where your elbow would rest on the guitar if you were playing it.
Do I need to worry about this crack getting longer? Is there anything I can do to keep it from getting worse? I'm not really worried about aesthetics. The guitar is black, and the crack is not very noticeable, I just don't want it to get longer.
I've never had an acoustic guitar crack get longer, but I figured it doesn't hurt to ask.
What do you think?
Thanks as always.
