This is a National Geographic children's book and has the quality that one would expect from National Geographic. If you are familiar with the magazine, you will know that this includes beautiful photography and an informational, first-hand narrative. In this case the narrative is written by the photographer. The photographs are all well-captioned (again like the magazine) so that it is clear not only what you are looking at but why it is important.

The book is written in several short sections. These are:

Face to Face -- an introductory passage about the experience of photographing dolphins in the wild

Meet the Dolphin -- information about dolphins; different species; how they breathe, sleep, etc

Family Life -- how the dolphins live in groups and families

People and Dolphins -- both good and bad interactions between people and dolphins; the threats they face are explained

How You Can Help, It's Your Turn, and Facts at at Glance -- three short fact-filled passages at the end of the book

The photographs are all well-captioned

There are also short things in the margins for children -- how to swim like a dolphin, how to speak dolphin, how dolphins play -- which are interesting and funny.

This is an excellent book for any young dolphin-lover in the family. It is packed with easily digestible information, including some that you might not already know. It also has links to websites and other sources of information. It is up to the usual National Geographic mark.

The book has lovely pictures in it but I hadn't realised it would be so thin and have so little information in the text. My son likes it as he loves dolphins but wouldn't recommend it.

Lots of knowledge about the cuteness and awesomeness of dolphins. Got this as a gift for someone, who seemed happy!

This book seems to support wild dolphins and Orca being kept in captivity! It's does not seem to dig deep into the reasons why this trade is so cruel and outdated in the 21st century. There are much better books you can spend your money on. Don't buy it!!!!!
