Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
Dolphins eat twenty pounds of fish every day. They need fat in their diet, so they eat lots of oily sardines. Millions of sardines live together and swim as one organism in large shoals (sometimes called schools). Traveling in this tight mass protects them from predators, but dolphins have larger brains than sardines and they have developed a technique for separating a section of fish from the shoal. A pod of dolphins dive into the shoal and herd a group away. These sardines cluster into a ball. The dolphins surround the ball and take turns going inside to feed. When they have eaten their fill the dolphins swim away and the remaining sardines rejoin the shoal. An easy-to-read text, enhanced by full-color photographs, appears in large print. Additional facts are included in "Did you know?" insets throughout. Includes a table of contents, a glossary, a bibliography, and an index. An appropriate book for young children to use as a source for information and research. "Predator vs. Prey" series. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
