About this title

Synopsis:

Swim with a baby dolphin as he learns to survive — and play — in an engaging story splashed with facts and buoyed by bright illustrations.

Pop! Tail first, head last, Dolphin is born into the blue. He’s brand new, but helped by his mother, he swims up, up, up to take his first breath. Readers are invited to join the baby calf as he follows his mom and discovers all there is to know about life under the sea, from catching his first fish to learning how to say his name with his very own whistle. Nicola Davies’s lyrical narrative and intriguing facts are accompanied by Brita Granström’s colorful illustrations, pulsing with the energy and movement of dolphins in their natural habitat.
Back matter includes a note about dolphins and an index.

About the Author:

Nicola Davies is a zoologist and the author of many books for young readers, including Surprising Sharks, a Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor winner, illustrated by James Croft; Big Blue Whale, illustrated by Nick Maland; and Extreme Animals: The Toughest Creatures on Earth, illustrated by Neal Layton. “I adore dolphins,” she says. “Just looking at them makes me happy. I've spent many days watching them — often when I should have been doing something else!” Nicola Davies lives in Wales.

Brita Granström has illustrated many children’s books, including Eyes, Nose, Fingers, and Toes: A First Book All About You and Does a Cow Say Boo?, both written by Judy Hindley. “I hadn’t seen a wild dolphin until I started Dolphin Baby!” she says. “Then, as if by magic, a pod of fifteen dolphins and their babies arrived near my home, so close to shore that I could draw them from my studio window. I immediately fell in love.” Brita Granström lives in England.
