If you are interested in learning about salamanders, then you should definitely read the book called Salamander Season by Jennifer Keats Curtis, J. Adam Frederick, and Shennen Bersani. The story is about a young girl who takes part in something called “Salamander Night.” The main characters are this girl and her father, who is a scientist, and they follow salamanders to learn about them. They learn about the salamanders over months as they grow and change. The girl explains, “Since Dad is a scientist, he takes two salamanders back to his lab to study.” The illustrations in the book are a mixture of photographs and drawings. I was surprised that a bunch of salamander eggs could be so firm! “As the spotted salamanders grow, they change color and darken.” My favorite part was when the salamanders got big enough to crawl around. I think young people who like salamanders and anything about nature are going to enjoy this book. It’s very special because the little girl gets to be with her daddy on Salamander Night. My daddy is a scientist, too!
