Reviews for Salamander Rain: A Lake and Pond Journal
Salamander Rain is a gift to the place-based education movement in North America. This lusciously illustrated field guide/treasure hunt is just the invitation teachers, parents and children need to get them exploring the ponds and lakes in their neighborhoods. The journal format creates a text that is easily accessible, but deep in information and intrigue. Be prepared – the author’s infectious joy will reach out and tickle you enough to get you to put on your boots, grab a net and make your own discoveries.

Wild places like wetlands provide habitat for a diversity of plants and animals and they are great for hands-on explorations of nature. This colorful book is an invitation to kids to learn – and care – more about ponds, lakes and other wetlands that are often found closer to home than we think.
