We've developed a webpage with links to a few places where you can learn more about Spadefoot Toads (did you know there were seven different types in the US?) as well as websites about vernal pools, books that Bill highly recommends and we're asking for feedback, so we'll share any project your class did after you read Night of the Spadefoot Toads.
The Association of Teaching Artists (ATA) have a great blog: teachingartists.blogspot.com
