Amphibian, by Barry Clarke. 72 pages. Publisher: DK Publishing, Inc. (September 5, 2005) Reading level: Ages 8+. Frogs, toads, newts, salamanders, and the rare caecilians come in a stunning array of colors, shapes, sizes, and habitats. They live both in water and on land and move in a great variety of ways from swimming, to hopping, and even flying. With a series of specially commissioned photographs, Amphibian takes a close look at the fascinating natural history of these creatures from the bright green, red-eyed tree frogs to dull, burrowing, wormlike caecilians; from startling black and yellow fire salamanders to tiny transparent glass frogs.
