School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-6-Cerullo explores the world of dolphins with a particular emphasis on their behavior. Much attention is also given to people who work with these mammals and studies of the interactions between humans and dolphins. In the first chapter, the author relates her own experiences at a dolphin research center in the Florida Keys, where she swam with the animals and spoke to many of the researchers about their different projects. The book continues in this anecdotal style with visits to various research centers around the world and descriptions of their scientific investigations. One section focuses on the use of these animals in therapy work with disabled or critically ill people. There are many facts about dolphins scattered throughout the text, but the chatty writing style and somewhat sophisticated language make them difficult to find without careful reading. Eye-catching full-color photos, many of dolphins and humans together, do much to add to the book's appeal. Though not the best choice for report writers, this title is a good supplemental source. It has lots of appeal for casual readers and fans of this popular animal.-Arwen Marshall, New York Public Library (c) Copyright 2010.
