Amazing Dolphins This week I read a short story called Amazing Dolphin. This story was written by Sarah Thompson. Dolphins use sounds to get the attention of other dolphins. Dolphins are mammals and need to breath oxygen. They use their hole to breath oxygen. On page 16 it says there are about 37 different kids of dolphins. Some live together to help each other. They are called schools. We must stop throwing trash in the oceans and stop people from killing the dolphins. I picked this book becaus ...more

A nice very basic introduction to Dolphins for kids. Clear and filled with good pictures. Nice choice of words for the early readers.

Interesting book. I actually learned a lot about dolphins while reading this book to my kids.
This book is good and it gives all aspects of dolphins. It used real pictures for illustration, and it is very informative. It shows dolphins’ life such as what things they eat, what sounds they made, how they breathe, and how dolphins help each other out. I even learned something new. Dolphins use sounds to communicate with other dolphins. The sounds are unique for each dolphin. It reminds me the similarity the unique of human’s fingerprint.
This is a wonderful book for the facts (I even learned something new) and the text was appropriate for the reading level.

The straightforward text is generally well-laid over beautiful, full-color pictures (the only notable exception is pages 28 and 29 with black text on dark blue water). Facts are simply put but very informative about all aspects of dolphins.

This book is very good to teach young students about marine life, especially, as the title suggests, dolphins. It seems especially good at keeping them interested with its illustrations.
A great introcuction to learning about dolphins for the beginning reader. Great pictures and enough interesting facts to keep kids interested.
I think that this book is good by giving it a picture of the dolphins and puts it in order by the body parts and how they eat.
Nathan loves dolphins and him doing dolphin noises as he learned more about them was priceless.
