Publisher Comments:

The itsy, bitsy spider went up the water spout … but exactly what kind of spider was it? Thousands of different kinds of spiders live all across the globe-from the plains to deserts to mountain slopes, and even underwater! Some are harmless, others are deadly, but every one of these creepy creatures fascinates children. This new volume in the GET WILD! Series brings kids into the world of arachnids, in all their amazing variety. Theres lots of fascinating information, all presented in a way that makes learning fun. Each two-page spread is self-contained, so kids can browse freely, looking for exactly the facts they want, whether for a school report or to find out about the spiders in their own backyard. Young readers will discover why spiders aren't insects, what characteristics all spiders have in common, what their habitats are like, how spiders spin their webs and hatch their babies, and how their bodies are constructed. There's plenty of cool stuff here to delight any child—and adult, too! For example, did you know that spiders actually have eight eyes at the top of their head, and that each one works independently of the rest? Some of the most unique and interesting arachnids receive special, in-depth coverage, and remarkable illustrations throughout offer a close-up look at these creatures. Key words are highlighted and there's a helpful glossary. Colorful, fun, and easy to understand, this will become a favorite early science book for young children.
