About this title

Synopsis:

A close-up look at the world of spiders discusses the anatomy of the spider, its habitats, locomotion, diet, and life cycle, answering questions about how spiders spin webs, how they protect themselves, and where they lay eggs.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6-This beautifully illustrated introduction offers some new insights into the subject. The text briefly describes the major physical characteristics of spiders; their senses; diet; hunting and feeding techniques; courting, mating, and egg-laying behavior; and the birth and care of the young. Special attributes of 13 species are also mentioned. Succinctly written, this title offers more detail on body functions than is currently available in other books. It also includes some interesting tidbits of information. A definite weakness, however, is the sparsity of scientific terms. When describing the silk-producing glands in a spider's abdomen, "spinnerets," the text simply refers to them as spigots. Sharp, full-color photographs accompany the text on almost every page. Closeup shots of a poison sac, lung, and heart of a dissected tarantula as well as enlargements of spider hairs, claws, and stomach tissue are of particular interest. The average sizes of species discussed are not given, but the photo credits include their degree of magnification. Claudia Schnieper's Amazing Spiders (Carolrhoda, 1989) and Jennifer Dewey's Spiders Near and Far (Dutton, 1993) also contain excellent illustrations, and both have useful diagrams; they employ more scientific terms and describe the behavior of a greater number of species. Still, despite its flaws, Outside and Inside Spiders, with its special emphasis on anatomy and its splendid photographs, will make a useful purchase.
