Dolphin Baby!

Today I am reviewing a children's picture book by Nicola Davies entitled Dolphin Baby!, written for children 5-8.

Dolphin is born into a world full of the love and security of his Mom.  She is his protector: teaching him how to breathe, where to swim, how to talk, and how to fish.  She is his nurturer: feeding him thorough her nipples and stroking him with her flippers.
