Life Story of a Salamander

Salamanders are described in meaningful detail.  The life cycle, from egg to adult, contains clear information.  Appropriate scientific language is used to explain each step.  Photos on every page are up-close and vibrant.  Food for salamanders are identified, as well as how and when they hunt and how prey is caught and swallowed.  Mating, which continues the life cycle, is briefly and suitably described.  A story diagram concludes and reviews the process.  Words in bold font are defined in the glossary.  Other books to read are written at a similar reading level.  Two websites and an index are included
