Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

—Gary F. Hevel
National Museum of Natural History

Synopsis:

Now updated, this classic book helps young readers learn about spiders with the latest information about the useful arachnids approved by the Smithsonian. Includes a glossary, index, Web sites, and more. Full color.

Synopsis:

Exceptional nonfiction for children from two of the most trusted names in science education: Seymour Simon and the Smithsonian Institution.
