All Kids Ask Questions is a series that attempts to start children (with help from an enthusiastic adult!) on their early journey of curiosity and inquiry.
Children are naturally curious. They observe what happens around them and their curiosity leads to them frequently asking questions such as ‘What’s this?’, ‘Why?’ and ‘How?’. These are the sort of questions that scientists ask too!
This book, What is a Spider?, answers these questions:
• What is a spider’s body like?
• What does a spider eat? How does it eat?
• How does a spider spin its web?
• Are spiders insects?
