Description


Weaving webs, digging burrows, and floating on strands of silk—spiders are fascinating creatures!

From tiny baby spiderlings to large tarantulas, nonfiction master Gail Gibbons' introduction to these intriguing arachnids reminds us that even when they look scary, most spiders are harmless—and even helpful!

There are over thirty thousand kinds of spiders in the world—small and large, colorful or gray—and they live, hunt, and adapt in different ways. A number of different species and spider behaviors are highlighted in this book, accompanied by clear, labeled illustrations and important vocabulary.

This new and updated edition, vetted by an entomologist, includes revised illustrations and the latest in arachnid science. Filled with interesting trivia and information on the history of spiders, as well as an explanation of the difference between spiders and insects, this is a great introduction that takes the fear out of our eight-legged, web-spinning friends.
