Overview

Dolphins are smart. They are so smart that they can talk to each other. Dolphins communicate underwater for the same reason people talk on land: to let others know who they are, where they are, and maybe even how to feel. Also included are activities that explore how dolphins talk to each other.

This book has tons of information about dolphins. I love how it is not just jumbles of text, but it also has colorful pictures that include diagrams. I also like how the book relates a dolphin family to a human family. This would be a good book to use in a science class to have your students relate animal lives and characteristics to ones of their own families.
