Scholastic Q&a Is a Dolphin a Fish

by

Scholastic Q&a Is a Dolphin a Fish Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From simple questions like "Where do most dolphins live?" to more complex ones like "Are dolphions good parents?" this book delivers easy-to-understand information about dolphins.

Is a dolphin a fish?

No. A dolphin is actually a small whale. And all whales are mammals--just like you.

In this insightful introduction to dolphins, kids will learn that the dolphin's ancestors probably lived on land, that these creatures have built-in air conditioning systems, and that they breath only once or twice a minute!

The Bergers explain key science concepts relating to these animals, and even explore the reasons they are endangered, and what is being done to protect them from further harm.

Synopsis:

In this insightful introduction to dolphins, kids will learn that the dolphin's ancestors probably lived on land, that these creatures have built-in air conditioning systems, and that they breathe only once or twice a minute!
