I attempt to find quality books that focus on salamanders and amphibians to review at a salamander blog. "What Newt Could Do for Turtle" by Jonathan London (Author) and Louise Voce (Illustrator) was an exceptional find which I highly recommend. It had great illustrations, a valuable story about helping others without the expectation of a reward and examined the benefit of taking time alone in thought to think about how to reach a goal. This is not the author's first book based on an amphibian as he has published 16 books in the Froggy series. Additionally, several images from the book are available for purchase including my favorite shown below titled "He went on his thinking rock and thought."
