The book also provides some background about the author and why the author wrote the book. It used real pictures for illustration which I think is a good idea to help children learn about animals.

This book is good and it gives all aspects of dolphins. It used real pictures for illustration, and it is very informative.

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.

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 is a wonderful book for the facts (I even learned something new) and the text was appropriate for the reading level.

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

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.
