Summary: This book tells facts about spiders. The use of colored text for interesting tidbits draws in the reader and encourages them to read the rest of the page more carefully. The full-color photographs are amazing and I may have nightmares about the closeup of the wolf spider with hundreds of babies riding on her back!
Classroom Ideas: Would be a welcome addition to any classroom study of spiders.
