K-Gr 3—Arachnophobes beware. Spectacular close-up photos of various species of spiders are the main attraction in this introductory series. Each title starts with a section giving caregivers and teachers ideas on activities that will enhance the reading of the text. This is followed with information on basic characteristics: color, size, habitat, eating habits, and reproduction. A world map shows the range for each spider; a visual glossary is also included. The Spanish translation is mostly accurate.
VERDICT The visual appeal of this series is undeniable, and with just enough facts provided it should engage young students.
