The Secret Pool (Hardcover)
We apologize; this item is no longer available. Please scroll down for the paperback edition and related products.
Often mistaken for mere puddles in the woods and even deserts, vernal pools are the source of life for many interesting creatures. If you look carefully you can find them - and be amazed! These secret pools form every year when low places fill up with rain and melted snow. They soon become home to hatching wood frogs, spotted salamanders, and fairy shrimp. Even in late summer and fall, when many vernal pools have shrunk to mud holes, creatures such as turtles and snakes rely on these places for shelter and food. Engaging reading for ages 6 to 10.
