Kindergarten-Grade 4-In a clear, easy-to-read style, Berger discusses how arachnids differ from insects, how they catch and eat their prey, and how webs protect them from their enemies. Five different types of spiders are included, along with information about how they create and utilize their unique webs. Detailed, full-color illustrations, often on spreads, highlight the well-organized text. Close-up scenes of these creatures at work capture the delicacy and beauty of their amazing creations. Pertinent Web sites and directions for mounting and preserving a web without harming a spider are appended. A lively and interesting look at a popular subject.
