If you know children who say “Ick!” when they spot a spider, this irresistible book will make them say “Ooh!” instead. Next Time You See a Spiderweb describes how these small, skillful creatures weave some of nature’s most clever traps—their webs. Author Emily Morgan shows how spiders snare their prey with tangled webs, funnel webs, and intricate orb webs. The book tells how spiders spin sticky silk without getting stuck themselves. And it reveals the surprising tricks of the jumping spider, fishing spider, and trap-door spider. Next Time You See a Spiderweb is a book that children and adults alike will want to take along on their next nature walk.
