With large, full-page stunning photographs and highly readable text, Morgan’s intent is to invoke a sense of wonder about nature, and nurture young scientists’ powers of observation. The text begins with a series of questions that invite further exploration. The text asks young readers what they have already observed, provides photographs for further observation and questions that invite dialogue and conversation. Students learn about and explore pictures of cobwebs, sheet webs, funnel webs and orb webs; the text explains how prey is trapped, spider adaptations and the properties of spider silk that make it incredibly strong and of interest to scientists and architects. Readers will come away with a new appreciation for spiders and the incredible ingenuity and artistry of the spider’s web. A picture book to encourage scientific thinking and observation; and, a useful introduction to the Grade 2 Science topic: Small Flying and Crawling Creatures.
