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! gives young readers the answers to 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. Young readers take a tour through the world of spiders. Soon, they'll be bitten by a new fascination for some of nature's most interesting creatures.
