Review: Spiders by Nic Bishop, 2007, is a nonfiction book all about spiders! It talks about the different kinds of spiders there are, what it eats, how it grows and more interesting things!
Blurb: Again I would use this in my classroom if children showed an interest in the topic and wanted to learn more. It's a great resource because its factual, has pictures and is well researched.
Quote: “Spiders don't have bones inside their body for support.“

This non-fiction book was all about spiders, as the tittle suggest. It includes very zoomed in illustrations of the spiders/bugs and many interesting facts to go with them. The pictures are very detailed too. It‘s main focus is how spiders survive.

I would use this book in a classroom because the author is qualified to write about this topic, it may appeal to readers' interests about spiders, and it builds knowledge about the natural world.

I really found this book interesting and it is a good nonfiction book because the author is qualified to write about spiders. The author has his doctorate in biological sciences and has several other books.

Spiders by Nic Bishop was published in 2007. The book describes a lot of different spiders and the characteristics that they have. Although they all might look different, they have similar characteristics. I like this book because the illustrations are large and realistic allowing children to get a good representation of each one.

The images were very interesting and detailed, but they were a little creepy to look at. They gave me the chills looking at them because they were so close and focused.

I thought this book was very interesting and had a lot of cool images. Although I am not the biggest fan of bugs, so the images were not so appealing to me. This book described different aspects about spiders, and gives a lot of information about spiders.

A spider's body has two main parts. The back part is called the abdomen. This contains the heart, which pumps pale blue blood (yes, blue!), and the spinnerets, which make silk.

The photographs were amazing but hard for me to look at because spiders freak me out.

This book talks about the different sizes of spiders, different kinds of spiders, fangs, molting, weaving webs, hunting, dancing and eating. It gives you very detailed and close up photographs of the spiders so beware--spooky. But so awesome if you want to learn more about spiders!

This was a very cool book if you are interested in spiders(creeped me out). The structure of the book made it very easy to read. It had a certain sentence emphasized in each page and then more information ins smaller font if you'd like to read more on the topic

A great aspect of this book is how on each page, there is a picture of a different type of spider and a caption that describes what exactly it is / does. The pictures are very realistic, large and detailed.
