This book introduces young readers to jumping spiders, the spiders that can see better than any other spiders on earth! Students will learn about jumping spiders' sizes, behaviors, habits, dietary needs, methods of defense, anatomy, and colors. Reproduction and spiderling development are also introduced. A diagram of a spider's body aids readers in indentifying anatomical features. Threats to the spiders and their habitat including predators and humans are covered. Readers will also learn about the jumping spiders' unique way of moving in reverse! A distribution map shows where jumping spiders are found, so the young arachnologist can be on the lookout for a specimen to observe. Full-color photos allow close observation from the comfort of the library. Glossary words in bold, phonetic spellings, and an index supplement easy-to-read text. These books are ideal for research reports and general reading. Checkerboard Library is an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.
