Spiders by Nic Bishop

Bishop, N. (2007). Spiders. NY: Scholastic.

In Spiders, Nic Bishop gives us an up close and personal look into the world of amazing arachnids. The reader is provided with plenty of marvelous facts and beautifully taken photographs of dozens of different types of spiders. You will learn many interesting tidbits of information from the smallest little spider to the largest arachnid on Earth.

Nic Bishop's Spiders is an excellent example of design at work. He includes giant pictures of the spiders he is working with to fascinate the children. The illustrations brilliantly compliment the text. For example. when he talks about the jumping spider he includes a giant spread of a spider jumping. The font he uses gets bigger and smaller as he emphasizes information. The book is colorful and fun. Kids of all ages would find it interesting as well as informative.
