Insects and Spiders

How do flies walk on walls and ceilings? Which insects act like farmers? How do spiders spin silk? Insects and Spiders gives students an introduction to insects and spiders and their physical characteristics. Readers learn about life cycles and behaviors of a number of these small, many-legged creatures. The volume’s special features include diagrams, fun facts, glossary, resource list, and index.

How do animals hunt, escape, and communicate? And how do scientists distinguish one animal group from another? World Book’s acclaimed Animal Lives series introduces the main animal groups to students with a primary reading level of grades 3 to 5 and teaches them basic principles of scientific classification.
