K-Gr. 2. This attractive book from the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series discusses the sounds made by dolphins. Pfeffer draws parallels between people's words and dolphins whistles, human babies' gurgles and baby dolphins' chirps, human mothers' warning words and dolphin mothers' scolding movements. Besides relating the wide range of sounds dolphins make, the author also describes how the sounds are made, their use in echolocation, and a variety of underwater noises made by whales. Davie's paintings portray the world beneath the waves with particular grace and surprising variety. The book closes with an excellent two-page diagram showing a dolphin's interior organs and bone structure. An inviting addition to science collections. Carolyn Phelan

The girls are 2, 5 & 6yrs.
This story is a great book for kids who are intersted in dolphins. The information is presented in a kid friendly way making it easy for young children to grasps the concept of echolocation.
I recommend this book to parents and teachers of kids ages 5-9. This book would make a great read aloud during an ocean unit.
