Pages: 32
Recommended Ages: Read-Aloud
Star Rating: ★★★★★

Dolphin’s First Day tells exactly the story it claims to – that of a dolphin’s first day in the ocean. From birth to first noises, first attempts at swimming, and first escape from a shark, we swim along with little dolphin in the watery deep.

While not of a scientific bend, Dolphin’s First Day communicates the experiences of a newborn dolphin in a way that is sympathetic and engaging. The dolphin itself is described in language that is affectionate and endearing.

Conclusion. Children will love this book.
