From School Library Journal
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.

I really did not know spiders, and I've seen them all my life. They are very complex and intricate, and now I look at them with new eyes. Eyes of wonder and awe.
The author points out that while people fear spiders, spiders rarely injure people. In the United States, only two kinds of spiders can bite a human being, but they are both very shy and usually run if a human draws close.
This book is really a gem. A wonderful way to introduce any child, or an adult-child, to the wonders of spinning spiders.
I have 2 books form this series and decided to buy a used lot of a couple dozen instead of 1 at a time. I am really excited to read more from "Lets read and find out". I love teaching him about the things in which he shows interest.
