Our library pet, Little Mikey, molted the day before school started. It was a difficult molt for a tarantula who is over 16 years old. After resting on his back for two weeks in the library office, he is on his feet and ready to entertain and amaze children. He was the perfect subject for a discussion of the differences between fiction and nonfiction books. Be sure to stop in the library to examine Mikey’s old exoskeleton and read a few of our favorite books about spiders.
