This web has a few bugs in it.
- It’s a book about spiders!
- There are great illustrations.
- It has lots of different poems, and some are really good.
- It has interesting, detailed facts, collected in one place, about spiders.
- It tries to do too much (not strictly a haiku book).
- It has too much information for kids — not quite an encyclopedia, not quite a reference book)
- Poem types are not identified.
Example I liked:
Southern House Spider
one pudgy velvet leg–
leaves predator holding
a tasty morsel
