About this title


Introduces the physical characteristics, behavior, habitat, and life cycle of salamanders.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3-While clearly written, this book is flawed by oversimplification. For instance, the use of the adjective "sneaky" in the title and in the text is both anthropomorphic and misleading; the word implies tricky, cowardly behavior. Dell'Oro does not adequately convey the fact that salamanders have few natural defenses and need to remain quiet and hidden to avoid predators. Also, the size range of various kinds of salamanders is not given. Mating is not mentioned, although the development of their young is discussed. Some important scientific terms are omitted as well. While the author defines "ectotherms" and "carnivores," she does not mention "metamorphosis" or "molting" although both processes are briefly described. Finally, she fails to identify the species depicted in the snapshot-sized, full-color photographs-even by common name-in captions or in the text. Emery Bernhard's Salamanders (Holiday, 1995) provides more detailed information on the life cycle, characteristics, and behavior of these amphibians.
