How Do You Know?
How can you tell an insect from a spider? It’s isn’t easy. But if you take a close look you can see how they are different. This fun, informative book provides all the tips and hints young readers will need to discover the differences between the two creepy crawlies.
Research Notes
“The idea for this series began with butterflies and moths, but as I started compiling a list of other possible titles, I realized that insects as a whole group needed attention too. I can’t tell you how people—kids and adults—think spiders and pill bugs and even centipedes are all insects. The truth is that all these little creepy crawlies have distinctly different body features and behaviors. I’m glad I can finally write a book that sets the record straight.”
