Biggest! Littlest!Book - 2004
One spider is as big as a dinner plate. Another one is as tiny as the tiniest raindrop. How does it help a spider to be so big? And how could it help another spider to be so small? Spiders Biggest! Littlest! answers these and other fascinating questions. Stunning photos of spiders from around the world show how spiders live. Each kind has features--big or small--that help it live in its special part of the world. The variety of eight-legged silk spinners is amazing, and some of the most astonishing examples are here in the latest offering by internationally recognized science writer Sandra Markle. The photographs are by Dr. Simon Pollard, who has traveled the globe to study how spiders live and snap their photographs along the way. Young readers will quickly find themselves bitten by a new fascination for some of nature's most interesting creatures.
