Thanks to this, I learned a lot of things about sharks and dolphins. And I thought all dolphins look the same!
Jan 16, 2010 Angela rated it it was amazing
Dolphins and sharks was very interesting. I really liked learning that the Killer whale was actually a dolfin. It was a great book and I'm glad that I read it. My favorite dolphin was the spinner dolfin. I may not like sharks, but my favorites were the maco sharks and the hammerhead shark. I can't wait till some of the other reasearch guides come out. They are really good. It is cool about some of the dolphins about what they do and how the comunicate. At first I thought that sharks always atack ...more

I like this book because it talks about how dolphins and sharks which also show pictures for students to see. Books about animals are neat because it can spark the interest in students at an early age.
This book is ideal for elementary school-age children, with lots of pictures and facts

another great guide. it talks about the basics about dolphins and sharks and then addresses some issues like that most sharks are not dangerous to humans. I liked the conservation segment.

This was an easy read, and read almost like a picture book. It had a lot of pictures that went along with the story. This read was more of like an informational read, as the two kids research dolphins and sharks and discover some really cool facts, even though it is a fictional book. This could be read by any child that has an interest in dolphins and sharks, along with many of the other Tree House books. This book could be read along with the fictional based book of Dolphins at Daybreak. It is ...more

Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
This is the first time that we've borrowed the non-fiction Research Guides that is the companion to the Magic Tree House story (in this case, Dolphins at Daybreak.) Interesting, but this book doesn't hold our girls' interests quite as good as the stories do. I was surprised, honestly, at how much our oldest really enjoyed this book. But it is ideal for elementary school-age children, with lots of pictures and facts, and not too much information.

This non-fiction fast-trscker is a companion read to the Magic Tree House series #9, Dolphins at Daybreak.
It is an excellent resourse book for children, probably grades 2-4, maybe even grade 5 , depending on their reading level. Difficult, scientific words are also spelled phonetically so that the reader can use 'big' words and pronounce them correctlh when telling about the book. At the end of the book are many suggestions for children who wish to learn more about dolphins and sharks, including

Jack & Annie are telling me all about dolphins & sharks. They tell me what kinds of dolphins there are like killer whales, bottenose dolphins, and other kinds. I liked the bottlenose dolphin because it looked pretty. They also tell me what kind of sharks there are like the tiger shark and the hammerhead shark. Auryn 7yo

Mark really enjoyed the beginning of this book, and then lost interest. He gained interest in the Magic Tree House series, which is a good thing. I thought sharks would hold his interest and this book might hold his interest when he's a little older and can read it himself. In general, I like this series as my kids pass through this age.

How fast can some dolphins swim? What is the biggest shark? Why do sharks attack? Find out the answers to these questions and more in this Magic Tree House Research Guide! Includes an illustrated gallery of dolphins and sharks, information on the ocean, dolphin communication, how sharks hunt for food, ocean exploration, and lots more!

after annie and Jack get back from their adventure to the ocean they have a lot of questions about dolphins and sharks. this book is between fiction and non fiction. the information about dolphins and sharks is true but the story line is not. it has a lot of great facts about dolphins that are useful to know for a science class.

This is a very informative companion book. I learned that the middle level of the ocean is called "The Twilight Zone". Do you know the difference between a dolphin and a porpoise? If you read this book, you will.

When i read this book it really stood out that this book is for little kids who are interested in sealife. The reading was very simple and had good little parts of information. Not something i would really recommmend to anybody. Thats why it only got 2 stars. :(

My son loves learning about dolphins and sharks, and thought this book was fantastic. We actually read this book before reading "Dolphins At Daybreak". We will continue reading the rest of the Magic Tree House Research Guide books along with the Magic Tree House books.

It's dolphins! And sharks! And cool facts about them! Really, that about sums it up, but it works for its target audience.
