I used to love dolphins when I was a kid. I would sing the theme song from Flipper all day long. (Not an endorsement.) I played with dolphin stuffed animals. I even had a dolphin-themed birthday party when I was three. I was just into dolphins.
Once I began reading, I wanted a book about dolphins. This was the book that my mother gave me. Dolphins! I don’t know how many times I read this book. But it was over. And over. And over.
Dolphins! Is a very basic introduction to dolphins – the different kinds of dolphins, their lives, their personalities, their intelligence, and their interaction with people. The drawings make them look super cuddly.
In several of the pictures, people are wearing bathing suits as they interact with the dolphins. Time for the Sharpie!
It is commented that “dolphins are mammals, like us.” [pg. 12]
Conclusion. A sweet book for little dolphin lovers.
