In the Preface the author states: "This book tells how to care for living things that make their homes in nature - in ponds or rivers, in woods or fields, or in one's garden - but unexpectedly may come, or be brought, into the house. Each life history is given in both photographs and text, so that the young naturalist will understand exactly what care is needed in an artificial environment." The author describes creatures ranging from salamanders and newts to cicadas and earthworms.
