Part of the "Bookworms" series, "a leveled reading program designed to reinforce the skills of emergent, early and fluent readers," this volume is aimed at early readers. Full page color photographs of the habitat and lifestyle of a dolphin are accompanied by minimal text with large print. The brief sentences describe the photos as the reader attempts to identify the animal in question. Important characteristics of the dolphin are repeated both in photos and text at the end of the story and boxed "challenge words" are featured. 2004, Benchmark Books, Ages 4 to 7.
