Description

This beginner's guide offers a first glimpse into the complex world of arachnids.
In this addition to the acclaimed About... series, educator and author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what arachnids are, how they live, what they eat, and how they reproduce. With beautifully detailed, realistic paintings, noted wildlife illustrator John Sill introduces readers to the diversity of the arachnid population, from the poisonous Brown Recluse Spider to the innocuous Giant Desert Hairy Scorpion. An afterword provides further details on the fascinating, often misunderstood arachnids to inspire young readers to learn more.
