Dolphin Named Bob by Twig C. George, Christine Herma Merrill, Christine Herman Merrill, Christine Herman Merrill

When Bob the dolphin was born, he was small and sickly, with an unusual comet-shaped mark on his drooping dorsal fin. No one at the aquarium expected him to survive. But like his mother, Aster, Bob was ornery, and he stubbornly struggled to overcome his health problems. And soon, he loved to leap high into the air and perform tricks.

Then one day, Bob taught himself a new trick-and jumped into more trouble than any other dolphin in the history of the aquarium. With a dolphin like Bob around, you never know what will happen!

This is a nice story, well written and with lots of information. My fourth grader is not a big reader but loves animals, sea life etc., and it kept her attention and interest. Read along with "Swimming with Sharks" by the same author.

I really enjoyed this book because it taught my alot of information I didn't know about how much fun Dolphins are.In the book a Dolphin named Aster, who is a pregnant Dolphin, washes ashore. The search and rescue team works hard to save this sick dolphin. She finally gives birth to a young Dolphin named Bob, but the two are still sickly and do not respond well to their trainers.Mike,one of the trainers, tries to cheer up Aster and Bob by putting on shows.It worked until a killer dolphin came into the tank. Mike has to lock up Aster to protect him from diasaster. Read to find out what happens next.
