Description

Part of a series of hilarious nonfiction about disgusting creatures, this book looks at the spider. It covers such topics as the spider's habitats (pretty much everywhere but outer space), the silk it spins (it can trap prey and makes a nifty bowtie), and its parenting practice (female spiders carry around their eggs in a silk purse). Although silly and off-the-wall, The Spider contains factual information that will both amuse and teach at the same time.

Loved this factual and funny approach to a scary subject! Great for little kids studying arachnids and also for older elementary kids too!

Filled with factual information about arachnids and a hoot to read!

Love this book about spiders, even though I am not crazy about them! As always, Ms. Gravel handles the world's misunderstood creatures with style and humor and even though I don't like spiders, I appreciate them a little bit more after having read The Spider!

I already love spiders and don't need convincing of their coolness, however, their inclusion in this awesome series makes them officially supercool.

This is one book from a series called, "Disgusting Critters".

My boys and I have read a few of these, and they always get a kick out of the content, illustrations, and humor. There is factual information about the spider in this book (and several things I didn't even know!), and it's also very silly to appeal to children.

The set would make a great gift.

An idea for fun at the office or next family gathering....

Thank you Netgalley for a free digital copy for review.
