About the Book

Overview

Here is an accessible and comprehensive introduction to dolphin species from all over the world; this title is the latest installment in the popular Strange and Wonderful series and a terrific STEM choice. With fascinating facts and detailed, illuminating artwork, DOLPHINS! Strange and Wonderful introduces readers to dolphin species -- from the well-known bottlenose dolphin to several species of "blackfish" (including orcas) that most people believe are whales. Author Laurence Pringle's clear, informative text describes dolphins' habitats, physiology, communication, intelligence, parenting, what and how they eat, and much more. The book also discusses conservation and how dolphins can be protected from hunting, pollution, and other threats. Accompanied by Meryl Henderson's beautiful and illuminating paintings, this book is a great STEM title that perfectly hits the mark for children interested in marine life. Includes a glossary, index, and further resources.

Reviews

“The latest book in the dependable Strange and Wonderful series opens with ‘If you were a young dolphin,’ and page by page, the text and illustrations work together beautifully to help readers understand these animals better. Well attuned to points brought up in the text, Henderson’s graceful watercolor-and-pencil illustrations offer close-up views of dolphins in action. A lively, informative introduction to dolphins.” - Booklist
