This was a really amazing book. K read this to me before bedtime and surprisingly he didn't freak out.
This book was filled with different kinds of spiders (some of them I have never heard or seen before) we got to learn some more cool facts. We also got to look at some really cool and freaky spider pictures. Did you know that there is a spider named a bird-dropping spider? Yep there is, and it looks like bird poop! Say WHAT!!! K thought that was so funny along with the Happy Face Spider. Now so
