Baby spiders start their lives as little creatures, smaller than the letters on this page. Once a mother spider lays her eggs, she's on the lookout for hungry predators hoping to feast on her growing offspring. Then, from the moment the spiderlings break out of their egg sacs--sometimes hundreds at a time--they must avoid danger until they are big enough to start spinning silk into beautifully woven webs to snag their own prey. Stunning, up-close photographs show baby spiders as they begin life and grow into adults. With the most up-to-date research about spiders from around the world, science expert Sandra Markle will capture even the most arachnophobic of readers.
