Usually ships within 6 days


Did you know that dolphins have their own language, called delphinese? Dolphins communicate with each other through whistles, squeals, clicks, and jaw claps. Just like humans, they exchange information, warn of danger, and communicate their feelings. This Stage 2 LRFO reveals some remarkable facts about dolphins and their ability to "talk" with each other and with their human friends. Also included are activities that explore how dolphins talk to each other. This nonfiction picture book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 5 to 7. It’s a fun way to learn to read and as a supplement for activity books for children.

This is a Level 2 Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science title, which means the book explores more challenging concepts for children in the primary grades and supports the Common Core Learning Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) standards. Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out is the winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Outstanding Science Series.
