US Kirkus Review » A National Geographic photographer introduces young readers to dolphins through photographs and description of their physical characteristics, family life and relations with human beings. This visually appealing presentation, part of a series of close encounters with the animal world, offers close-ups and action pictures of various dolphin species including orcas. Relying on the spectacular images to entice the reader, the authors never quite explain why young people should care about dolphins but acknowledge their playful appeal. Sidebar instruction in dolphin-like swimming and the use of a balloon to make the squeaks that are part of the species' vocal repertoire, as well as a description of dolphin play, help young readers connect. Extensive endmatter, in a smaller type font, provides information on how young readers can help dolphins (mostly through being careful about waste), tells where to see them and how to take pictures and provides more detailed facts about the species. Pair it with Kathleen Dudzinski's Meeting Dolphins (2000) from the same publisher. (glossary, bibliography, index) (Nonfiction. 7-10) (Kirkus Reviews)
