||Are you an arachnophobic or an
arachnophile? Do you hate spiders or do you love them?
Either way you will love learning about them in Iím Trying
to Love Spiders. Did you know that spiders liquefy their
food using their venom? They eat 75 pounds of bugs a year.
There are about 40,000 species of spiders including the
writing spider, the golden wheel spider, and the assassin
spider. Spiders are amazing because they can spin silky
food- trapping webs from the protein that their bodies
make. They have eight eyes. Their scopulae help them stick
to walls and ceilings. What a superpower! The author
unfortunately has a lot of trouble not squishing spiders.
Her book is full of illustrations of squished spider
blots. By the end of this book though, I bet the author
will convince you to LOVE learning about spiders. (Pennsylvania Young
