New Book for Kids: Super Spiders

Super Spiders (Read Me!: Walk on the Wild Side) by Charlotte Guillain starts right out with the important question: “Are you afraid of spiders, or do you find them interesting?” If you fall in the “spiders are amazing” camp, then this is a book for you.

Read to find out what spiders look like, what they eat, and how they spin their webs. Colorful photographs show close-ups of many different kinds of spiders. The big-eyed jumping spiders shown on page 6 are a favorite of mine. They are just adorable.

Super Spiders is perfect for future arachnologists, but might also be useful for children who fall closer to Miss Moffett. Often learning about something makes it less frightening, especially insects and spiders.
