How Do You Know?
How can you tell a salamander from a lizard? It’s isn’t easy. But if you take a close look you can see how they are different. This fun, informative book provides all the tips and hints young readers will need to discover the differences between the two fascinating creatures.
Research Notes
“To really learn the difference between these two critters, you have to travel—at least I did.

“I grew up carefully lifting logs and rolling over rocks in search of secretive salamanders, but it’s not nearly as hard to spot lizards. I’ve see cute little anoles scurrying across sidewalks in Florida, and massive iguanas sunning themselves on tiled roofs in Costa Rica. Some lizards are downright flamboyant.  

“Memories of these experiences flowed through my mind as I worked on this book.”
