Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Crowder
It's a good question: Do dolphins really smile? Young children who are reading with help can find the answer and more in this book, part of the "All Aboard Science Reader" series. This simply written introduction to dolphins tells very young readers that dolphins aren't fish, but mammals that must breathe air; that they are part of the whale family; that there are many kinds living all over the world. But what else do scientists know? The book reveals that dolphins are the only creatures aside from humans and apes that can recognize themselves in a mirror. They communicate and can work together to hunt fish. Finally, the book features some stories about trained dolphins in captivity. So, do dolphins smile? Scientists say no; they have the same facial expression even when scared. This is an affordable, fun book for very young readers, although it could do without the anthropomorphism streak.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-This easy reader asks a question that will attract children and provides basic facts about dolphins. Several short sentences appear on each page, offering a lot of information. Unfortunately, the book lacks clearly defined chapters that would aid report writers in locating specific details. Colorful pictures clearly illustrate the narrative. However, Kevin J. Holmes's Dolphins (Bridgestone, 1997) and Wendy Pfeffer's Dolphin Talk (HarperCollins, 2003) do a better job of introducing these appealing creatures and their habits.-Christine Markley, Washington Elementary School, Barto, PA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
