Discover More: Dolphins


Discover More: Dolphins by Penelope Arlon and Tory Gordon-Harris. Scholastic Discover More series. 32 p. Scholastic Inc., February, 2014. 978-545627382. (Finished copy courtesy of publisher for review.)

I just love the Discover More series for middle school and was delighted to get a look at this one aimed at a younger audience. It’s beautifully designed and crammed with full-color photographs. Sections are well-organized. Each double-page spread simple and clearly explains a feature about dolphin life. The accompanying e-book is worth a look as well. It contains stories, additional information and some cute games. The topic is certainly high-interest and this package delivers.

There’s a glossary and index, but aside from photo credits, no source  notes or suggestions for further reading. Still, it’s a nice addition to the animal collection and sure to please your budding fact hounds.
