    Beautiful, Creepy Pictures!

    "Spiders" is not a recommended book for an individual as squeamish as I am. While reading this book, I could literally feel spiders crawling on my skin. It is a great informative book for kids with a broader vocabulary or who have an interest in these 8 legged creatures. The descriptions of each spider is detailed and the pictures in this book are extraordinary! The author does a great job explaining the wonders of each spider in the book. It is a recommended read for any child who shows a thrill in learning new things about insects.

    Spiders by Nic Bishop is a great picture book full of detailed information about different types of spiders. This Sibert Award winning book is filled with vibrant colors and life like pictures of spiders. This would be a great book for teachers to introduce to their students. The up close pictures in this book speak for themselves. They are trully amazing. They just seem to jump out at you as you turn each page. There are many spiders who do not use webs. I did not know that until I read this book. I always associated webs with spiders, "spiderwebs". It also says that the jumping spiders have the best sight of any kind of spider. Nic Bishop also said that several of the spiders that he listed in the book were home raised. He watched them grow up for months. He did this so that he could capture rare photographs of the spiders during molting, courting and egg-laying. These are just of the amazing facts that are in this wonderful book.

    Spiders was a well written, thought-out book that is very informative. It was highly educational and had great pictures but if you are like me, the picture kind of creeped me out. But other then that, I thought it was really informative and was done in a way that no matter what age you are, it is easy to understand and you got a lot out of the book.

    Good Information

    Nic Bishops' "Spiders" is an informative book.
    It makes us give spiders a second look.
    No really!
    Some spiders are as small as a grain of sand,
    While others are bigger than your hand.
    Spiders have two parts like you and me
    A head and a body and those are key.
    The abdomen holds the silk and the heart,
    Which pumps blood as blue as a Wal-Mart.
    Yes, blue!
    The head is called cephalothorax,
    And holds eight legs up to the max.
    Spiders eat in the most unusual way,
    They don't chew or swallow but rather drink their prey.
    Slurp, Slurp!
    Spiders don't have bones instead they have hard skin
    And when they grow they molt preferably in a nice warm den.
    Tarantulas are the biggest of them all
    And can live up to thirty years to be an old grandpa.
    Or Grandma!
    They are scared of humans despite what you think
    But don't get too close they could bite in a wink.

    For the non-squeemish!

    Well I, like most people, do not care for spiders so it was a little challenging to keep reading this book but, for educational or personal interest purposes this book is great. The pictures are fantastic and very life like (which made me a little squeemish)! Also, the information about the spiders is simple enough for a child to comprehend and not too indepth to where an adult could lose interest. At the end of the book the author, Nic Bishop, lightly touches on his interesting experiences, expeditions, and trips to find these spiders which I thought was a great and interesting end. After that page, the author has a glossary for the reader to better understand some of the vocabulary and an index to go back and look at your favorite spider or perhaps the one you found most interesting.
