One spider's search for a home of her own

Each spring hundreds of spiders hatch from their egg sacs and begin their struggle to survive. They must protect themselves not only from predators, but also from their very own siblings!

Ginger Wadsworth and Patricia J. Wynne chronicle the real-life drama of one spider as she eats, grows, spins a dragline of silk, and soars up, up, and away to find a home of her own.

Baker & Taylor
Describes the life cycle of the garden spider, from its emergence in the spring from a sac created in the late fall, to a move to surrounding areas carried by the wind, to life during the summer catching insects, and to final mating which will start the cycle over.

Great little book about a type of garden spider common to North America. Reads like a picture book, beautiful illustrations.
