Spider webs

The Spider
by Elise Gravel

A comical look at spiders, with silly quips and cartoon pictures. It helps in portraying spiders as generally friendly creatures that should not be feared. Kids may even learn a few facts as they read.

Spiders and Their Webs
by Darlyne A. Murawski

Published by National Geographic, this is a close-up examination of nine types of spiders and the webs they build. Large colour photos are accompanied by spider facts such as body size, habitat, and food, while the main text describes web construction and how spiders capture and eat prey. Murawski even shows kids how to make spider webs more visible and includes anecdotes about her photographic adventures.

Good for ages 6-8.
