10 Books About Dolphins

My boys and I just love learning about ocean animals.  We particularly enjoy reading books about dolphins, whales, and sharks.

Over the years I think we've read just about all the books available at our local library!

Here are 10 of our favorite books about dolphins:

1.  Dolphins at daybreak; we just love the Magic School House books and this one did not disappoint.  Jack and Annie befriend some dolphins when they are stranded out in the middle of the ocean on one of their many adventures.

2.  Dolphin Talk: Whistles, Clicks, and Clapping Jaws-- We love these read and find out science books.  They are great for presenting factual information in a really engaging way.

3. Swimming with Dolphins- We love, not only the story, about a girl who discovers and swims with dolphins at the beach near hear but also the lovely illustrations that accompany it.

4. Winter's Tale and Hope for Winter-- I combined these two books to one entry since they both deal with the real life story of Dolphins Winter and Hope from the Dolphin Tale movies.  My boys just love anything having to do with these remarkable true stories.  Of course it doesn't hurt that we visited Hope and Winter at Clearwater Aquarium (you can read about our trip here)!

5.  The Secret Lives of Dolphins-- We've just recently discovered this series of books called The Secret Lives of Animals and we just love them!  They are full of beautiful pictures and lots of information.

6.  Dolphin Baby! -- A delightful story that follows a baby dolphin as he learns everything about his world.

7. Dolphins! -- My boys love Step Into Reading books; they provide information in an easy to read format so as not to be overwhelming.

8. Amazing Dolphins!-- Another great easy to read book filled with colorful photographs and lots of information about dolphins.

9. Diving Dolphin-  This easy reader is prefect for my youngest to read aloud while learning about dolphins.  Filled with beautiful photography he really enjoyed this book.

10. National Geographic Readers: Dolphins-- My boys love National Geographic Readers.  They're fun, easy to read and have jokes tucked into the corners of pages.  This book is all about dolphins and what makes them so special.
