Vernal pools are small wet areas in the springtime. In Maine, they are the breeding habitat for four species. One of these is the blue salamander. By the time summer arrives the eggs have hatched and the pools have evaporated. This lovely artist rendering of the pools slides away to reveal the mating salamanders. Another in the Threatened and Endangered series.
Goodale originally editioned this book in 2002 but it was so popular that she has editioned a second one with brighter colors.
