Description


How do spiders spin such large webs? Spiders produce a unique silk that can stretch from wall to wall, or between the legs of a chair. In this book, featuring remarkably realistic artwork by S.D. Schindler, you will learn about the silk spiders produce, the webs they spin, and the prey they capture. You will even learn how to make a web of your own! This nonfiction picture book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 5 to 7. It’s a fun way to learn to read and as a supplement for activity books for children.

This is a Level 2 Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science title, which means the book explores more challenging concepts for children in the primary grades and supports the Common Core Learning Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) standards. Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out is the winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Outstanding Science Series.
