Nic Bishop also describes how many legs the spiders have, their colors, how they catch their preys. Because I recognize both Nic Bishop and the Sibert Honor on the cover of the book, I trust that the information contained in the text is accurate. Also about tarantulas and how they behave, and that they are the biggest spiders of all. In the back page, there is a note about the author. The book does not appear to be organized in a topical way, which might be confusing for some readers. The design of the book would, ideally, facilitate comprehension of important facts.

Nic Bishop is the author and photographer of many award-winning books for children, including RED-EYED TREE FROG; CHAMELEON, CHAMELEON; NIC BISHOP SPIDERS; and most recently, NIC BISHOP LIZARDS. He has a doctorate in biological sciences and a passionate interest in many of the smaller animals on our planet.

Nic Bishop's signature up-close, stop-action photographs show spiders larger than life.For the first to third grade set, spiders are fascinating and suitably gruesome, especially when looked at in EXTREME close-up. Amazing images show the beauty and otherworldliness of spiders. Simple, engaging text conveys basic information about spiders as well as cool and quirky facts. One stop-action montage shows a spider leaping twenty times its body length!

Nic Bishop has a doctorate in biological sciences and when creating this informational picture book on spiders with first class photography, several spiders in the book were raised at his home. I learned so many new facts about spiders, "they were one of the first predators to walk on land", and that spider silk can be "stronger than steel and can stretch twice its own length". Spiders won the Robert F. Sibert Honor for the valuable information. I admire this book because the pictures are phenomenal in high definition. The text had just as much depth with matching descriptions that explain terminology related to spiders anatomy, behavior and processes. Since learning that some spiders are venomous they creep me out, so looking at page after page of life-like pictures I was unsettled. However for older children who are interested in learning about arachnids this book would be invaluable.

Spiders by Nic Bishop is an informational book that is filled with interesting facts about these creepy crawly eight-legged creatures. The best part of this book is the large up-close and personal photographs of a variety of spiders.

Bishop did a beautiful job with the layout and information in this book. It's perfect for children from 5 - 8 years of age but even my 10-year old loved the photos and learned a lot from this book, her favorite was the cobalt-blue tarantula.

This book is filled with colorful and exotic spiders weaving webs, molting, hunting, eating, and fighting. It would be a great addition to a classroom or library.

Spiders is a great picture book for kids. The factor that I enjoyed the most was the focus on education. Nic Bishop, through the pictures and the text, is teaching children the life cycle and the creative nature of spiders. The pictures in this book are photographs taken of spider in their natural habitat. Each picture shows a different spider and their home. This book helps children see that spiders are different in nature and there are millions of different types of spiders. Children need to read books like this one to expand their knowledge about biology and science. The only negative response to this book that I have is that most children could not handle this book right before bed time. For a child who has a fear of spiders, if you read this book to them at night, you may just have to stay up all night with them. Other than that, this book would be great for children who want to expand their knowledge about biology and who love spiders and incects. I would recommend this book to any parent or teacher who wants to teacher their children about spiders

A creepy, crawly, spine-shivering book! Nic Bishop absolutely hits on point the correct way to introduce and explain spiders. He is direct and to the point. This book allows children to learn of the nature of spiders, the way the act, how long they can live, the ways they mate, and much much more! It is also an amazing book for children interested in these eight-legged arachnids because Nic Bishop uses actual photography in his book, not illustrations. I do NOT like spiders. Big ones, small ones, colorful ones, black ones. NONE! But I do find this book to be positively educational because even though I do not like these eight legged buddies, they do exist and I can not pretend like they don't exist. Yes, I would use this in my classroom!

A Sibert Honor Book worthy of all of its praise. I've never been a fan of spiders. In fact, I don't know many people who are, but I dare you to open this book and just try to close it. Something tells me you won't be able to. The photographs, taken by none other than Nic Bishop himself, are meticulously planned and plotted. They're so vivid they almost feel like they could crawl off the page. I found myself actually studying the pictures, noticing things I'd never been close enough to a spider long enough to examine. Bishop does an immensely great job of mesmerizing the reader. Not to mention the plethora of knowledge about spiders that he shares with us. To be quite honest I probably wouldn't have even read any of it, if it weren't for the pictures and the fun way he positioned the text. It's almost as if it's popping off the page at you to read it. I finished this book feeling like an expert on spiders. A surprisingly enjoyable book. I recommend it for people of all ages who want to know a little more about spiders, and even those who don't think they want to know more about spiders!

The first time I "read" this book I couldn't take my eyes off the pictures, page after page I never quite got the text because I was so amused with the close up shots of these incest's. Then when I went back and read all the words I found out a whole lot of information! This is a great book for people of all ages to learn more about this species. The pictures help explain the text and the book gives an in-depth picture of what exactly is going on. I started to question how he knew so much about spiders and what made him want to write this book; I then read the back cover and found out that Nic Bishop searched for spiders in several states then kept them in his studio, he spent hours looking at them through his camera lens, and he even took some on vacation with him! I have never been a big fan of spiders and this book is probably about as close up as I will ever see a spider! It would be a great tool in the classroom because it's interesting to read and very informative.

Spiders
By: Nic Bishop
Robert F. Sibert Honor Book
Did you there are more than 38,000 types of spiders. They are everywhere in the world and really are not scary but very helpful keeping the bug population down. Spiders have been around for over 350 million years and are the most successful predator known to date. Spiders come in all different sizes to a grain of sand to a spider as big as a sheet of paper. Spiders are not insects that have eight legs and do not have wings which is what makes them different from insects. This book is very informational on everything you would want to know about spider. The pictures in this book are very vivid and in depth. This book is great for a spider lover or for anyone wanting to get more educated about spiders.
