Booklist Review

Gr. 6-9. This attractive, instructive book in the SeaWorld Education series focuses on the bottlenose dolphin, one of 30 dolphin species. Following information on dolphins in general (habitat, physiology, behavior, and even their place in ancient myths), the focus shifts to how bottlenose interact with one another and how they are trained in aquariums and aquatic animal parks. The methods SeaWorld uses to train and study dolphins are explained in great detail. There is also some information about related careers. Dense with fact, the text is usually easy to follow and straightforward, though Nuzzolo assumes readers have an elementary knowledge of biology, and occasionally scientific jargon needs more in-text explanation. The book has great visual appeal; its color photos are beautiful, and there are color diagrams and graphs. A glossary, a bibliography, and further readings are appended. --Ed Sullivan Copyright 2003 Booklist
