Nic Bishop Spiders

Series: Nic Bishop
by Nic Bishop Illustrated by Nic Bishop
Exciting new reader from Nic Bishop! There are more than 38,000 types of spiders. They live almost everywhere, even in your basement! Spiders have eight legs and fangs. They spin silk into webs — and use the webs to catch their dinner! Now even the youngest readers can join Sibert Honor author, photographer, and biologist Nic Bishop as he takes a closer look at the world's most amazing animals. In this first book, Nic introduces fun facts about spiders and their bodies, habits, and life cycle. The simple, easy-to-read text is perfect for beginners, and the eye-catching photographs will delight naturalists of all ages.
