From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-3-Similar in format to this author/illustrator team's Dragonfly (1993) and Eagles (1994, both Holiday), Salamanders offers an overview of these age-old amphibians. Introductory pages show a spring woodland scene with the creatures emerging to seek areas to mate and lay eggs. The well-organized text concentrates on species found in North America and their behaviors, and describes how they develop differently from other amphibians, such as frogs and toads. Facts about camouflage, distinct coloration, and regeneration add interest, and concluding statements point out the necessity of a balanced environment for the animals' continued survival. Framed watercolor paintings, done in more muted tones than the previous presentations, reflect natural coloration of salamanders and their respective habitats. The depiction of one type of salamander per page, clearly labeled and captioned, keeps readers focused on specific information. The large print, simple but informative narrative, and appealing illustrations will attract both browsers and report writers. This title will serve as an introduction to books such as Cherie Winner's Salamanders (Carolrhoda, 1993) and Ginny Johnston and Judy Cutchins's Slippery Babies (Morrow, 1991), both of which have photos. Young nature enthusiasts will be pleased to find it on library shelves.
