Kids’ books featuring salamanders

I stumbled upon a few kids’ books featuring spotted salamanders and thought the information might be useful for some of our readers. They look to be a nice mix of science education and fun/engaging stories. I’ve not read them all but it looks like they receive very positive reviews. I vaguely remember reading “The Salamander Room,” featuring what looks like a red salamander, and on a few occasions (unsuccessfully) attempted to create amphibian habitats in my bedroom.

I'm a graduate student seeking to contribute to our understanding of how ecology, evolution, and their interplay contribute to the abundance and distribution of animal populations. Since 2011, I have been a part of the Niewiarowski Lab, where I help run a long-term demographic study of an Ohio breeding population of spotted salamanders.

    The last book is probably the neatnic parents nightmare, although I sometimes think that my own son’s room seems like a swamp….and I don’t think he read the book!
