9780060891039: Spiders

Spiders are one of the most familiar animals in the natural world, yet their biology and lifestyles are poorly known to the general public. The large orb webs in vegetation are a good indicator of their presence, but such webs are constructed by only a certain percentage of spiders. Other kinds live in the ground, in leaf litter, under tree bark, and in freshwater streams. Spiders have been found to never be farther than twelve feet from humans. In this volume, award-winning author Seymour Simon provides an informative, concise, and sometimes surprising review of what is known about spiders.

From Booklist:

Gr. 2-5. The stunning cover may repulse squeamish arachnophobes, but fearless types will be fascinated by Simon's foray into the world of spiders. In his now familiar picture-book format that pairs incredible photographs with graceful, clear prose, Simon provides a wealth of information about different types of spiders, their characteristics, habits, and life cycles. The large, full-color, uncaptioned photographs of highly magnified spiders (a tiny note at the end of the book explains that the photos are not actual size) tempt browsers to look at all the pictures first, but browsers will soon be drawn to the text to learn about what they are seeing. What a neat trick! The only thing that's missing is a map showing the distribution of particular spiders; it would have been reassuring to see that fearsome species don't necessarily live next door.
