People who create computer Web sites to attract attention or catch new customers are borrowing an idea millions of years old. A spider's web is its communication center. Not only do spiders have to choose the right site for their networks, but they also make the material to build them with. No wonder spiders are such fascinating animals.

With this fourth title in her critically acclaimed natural history picture book series, award-winning science author Margery Facklam invites you to discover the fascinating world of spiders. Spinning, jumping, roping prey, diving underwater, and even spitting their dinners into submission -- the behaviors of twelve different spiders, plus one that's not, are shown in Alan Male's striking artwork, up close and personal in their natural habitats. The text and illustrations combine to create a book of scientific information presented in an irresistible, eye-catching format that will compel even those with acute arachnophobia to turn the pages. . . .

This book is an excellent book filled with great pictures of different kinds of spiders and lots of information about each one. It even includes a page of bugs (like the daddy long leg) that are often mistaken for spiders. The reading level is upper elementary/middle school, but my 4 year old loves this book so when I read aloud, I just skim through and hit the important parts.
