Nefertiti, The Spidernaut: The Jumping Spider who Learned to Hunt in Space
For the reader who loves true facts about animals, this nonfiction picture book chronicles the amazing voyage of Nefertiti, the Spidernaut to the International Space Station and back.
Nefertiti clocked a record-breaking 100 days in space, during which time she circled Earth 1584 times, traveling about 41,580,000 miles. This is an astonishing story of change: through the dark and cold, in spite of being weightless and isolated, this incredible spider adapted and learned to hunt. Nefertiti’s story of survival brings hope that we, too, can adapt to a changing world.
