Brian found a beautiful, little orange salamander in the woods and took it home. When his mother asks where it will sleep, Brian’s concern for making the salamander feel at home leads him to suggest how to keep it comfortable—by making the house more and more like the forest the salamander came from... 

With its thoughtful text and absolutely gorgeous illustrations, this book was a favorite in our home when my daughter was young.
