Fantastically bright and engaging pages draw young readers into the exciting world of dolphins in DOLPHINS! (Animal Planet Chapter Books #6).
Welcome to the underwater world of the ocean’s favorite mammals: dolphins! They swim, they chatter, they flip in the air! Who can resist that toothy grin? In this enticing chapter book, young readers will gobble up facts and stories like a dolphin gobbles up small fish (check out how they corral their prey as a group in chapter three). Adorable pictures of real dolphins playing in the ocean: check. Real stories of dolphins using their intelligence to protect humans from bigger predators? Check! There’s even a chapter on mythology and history of dolphins throughout the world. Most importantly a chapter is included on how humans can help save the dolphins from pollution and human interference.
With dozens of facts and entertaining anecdotes about these beloved creatures, children will adore spending time pouring over the pages. The bright photographs and charming illustrations break up the copy to keep the book light and fun. The “In Your Newsfeed” sidebars have particularly delightful stories about dolphins and help to engage young readers even more with the subject. With enough facts to help with a light report on dolphins, and enough entertainment to be read for pleasure, DOLPHINS! has something for every child fan. A great addition to a child’s home library or for the classroom.
