This is a beautiful book, and very pro breastfeeding!

It is a beginner reader (level 3), but it is a lovely story to read to a smaller child/baby. I bought this book for my eldest child to read because she loves dolphins, I had no idea that it was such a pro breastfeeding book!

I highly recommend it!

It is a wonderful story about the daily life of a pod of dolphins, in particular a mama dolphin that gives birth. The baby is born and mama takes him to the surface for air then nurses him. He is nursed several more times throughout the book, with very positive points about mama's milk being the best for him.

In the end the 6 month old dolphin has a run in with a shark, and gets his fin very slightly injured, what makes him all better???? MAMAS MILK!

The story finishes by saying that he will continue to nurse until he is a year old and then spend a long happy life with his mama and the other pod dolphins.

The book is nicely illustrated and has two pictures of the dolphin nursing and one of him being born!

hope you will enjoy it!

A super book for the early reader. Focuses on the adventures of a baby dolphin, born at the beginning of the book. Combines his wonder of discovering the world around him with the comfort of knowing his mother is close at hand. Parents should be cautioned that the little dolphin is attacked by a shark at one point in the book, but the pod works together to save him. A very happy ending follows quickly and serves as a great discussion tool.

Format: Paperback
This book is about dolphins. A baby doilphin is born. The book tells how the mother dolphin has a baby. First the baby dolphin's tail comes out. Then his head comes out too. Then it tells how a baby dolphin is protected by its family. My favorite part was when the baby dolphin was born. I think other kids will like this book because they will learn about dolphins.

My daughter checked this out of her school library and then asked for the book for Christmas. The pictures remind me of the kind that most books had in the 70's. Meaning just black, blue and yellow...and of course green when they mix. I never would have picked this out for her but I think it is the story that intrigues her so much. Mothers and their babies are facinating to little girls. She now knows so much about dolphins from such a simple little book. Glad Amazon had it!

I gave this to my son who is reading, but at times needs to be encouraged to practice reading. While expecting him to only read a few pages, he asked to read the whole book. He was also excitedly relating various plot points and information about dolphins. Anything that can get him excited about reading is great, and it has the added bonus of teaching him facts about dolphins.
