This dedicated spider rescuer will likely still draw the line at black widows, but upbeat children's music artists Jeff Kagan and Paige Doughty make it clear in their science-and nature-celebrating CD that even that scary creepy crawly is an unexpectedly interesting part of the natural world. One song describes animal habitats in the Arctic; an entertaining highlight elaborates on how highways have become a new eco-system, serving as a banquet table for scavenger species. With humor, a pop music beat, clever lyric constructions, and frank messages of environmental conservation and the interconnectedness of life, this informative album offers young listeners fascinating facts about the characteristics of all manner of critters, even to the musically delivered definitions of ungulates and the vital role played by keystone species.
