Once a year, for just a few nights when the weather is just right, the salamanders come out and cross the road, from one side to the other, migrating. Salamanders are so important to the ecosystem, but they’re getting rarer and rarer, hurt by pollution and climate change. And when they do cross the road, more are hurt by fast-moving cars that don’t see the salamanders, that don’t even know they’re there. But April and her mother, a scientist, know about them, and if tonight is the night, then they’ll be there helping these fragile, important creatures stay safe.
This lovely picture book by author Katy Farber introduces young readers to the spotted salamander, a creature not often seen in the wild but that is very important to the health of our planet. With an engaging story and simple, likeable characters, youngsters are sure to be interested in the safety of these creatures. Illustrations by Meg Sodano help bring the story to life, providing just the right amount of detail with lovely pictures to keep the attention of little eyes. This beautiful picture book will be treasured by any animal lover.
