Follow author and photographer Nic Biship as he travels around the world and gives us an inside look at the spider. With photographs by him and actual first hand experience, this is a book that you won’t be able to put down.
Evaluation Criteria: Accuracy. The textbook tells us that no matter how visually appealing a book is, or how positive the reviews are, it all becomes meaningless if the information is inaccurate. But when it comes to the book “Spiders,” by Nic Bishop, I could say that accuracy is not a problem. Yes, he does have visually appealing images (which he took himself), but he also include verified information, he himself having trekked the world to photograph all kinds of animals and to study them. This book is also published by Scholastic, a trustworthy publication firm itself.
