Dolphin Baby by Nicola Davies and illustrated by Brita Granstrom. Dolphin Baby is beautifully illustrated with water color style paintings of dolphins on every page. Each page shares the story of a newborn dolphin baby’s experiences. In addition to “Dolphin Babies” adventures, there is a dolphin life fact. Dolphin Baby “POPS out into the blue,” tail first, head last. His first breath is taken when he swims up and his blowhole touches the air. Dolphins must come to the surface to breathe because they are mammals like you and me. There are things baby dolphins are born knowing. There are things baby dolphins learn. He stays with his mother for about four years where he can learn all there is to learn as he grows. This book includes an index where you can find lots of facts about baby dolphins and what each page has, like clicking, diving, echoes, whistling, and breathing, just to name a few. If you love dolphins, especially bottle nose dolphins, you will be enchanted by the Dolphin Baby story. See this book listed in our catalog
