Today is Dolphin Day!
Did you know that the biggest dolphin is the orca?
Yup, even though we usually call it a killer whale, it's technically a dolphin!
SO now you know!
So in honor of dolphin day- how about a great new kids book?
When Annie spots a dolphin trapped in fishing line in the cove near her house, she rushes to free him. Everyone cheers when she returns to shore, but only Annie knows that she and the dolphin have forged a special bond. He's become her friend — and keeps returning to the cove to visit and play! Meanwhile, out of the water, nothing is going right. Annie's best friend, Emma, has changed, and keeps ditching her to hang out with snobby Morgan. At home, Annie's busy parents barely seem to have time for her, and she's stuck with her hyper younger brother always tagging along. Then a misunderstanding with Morgan makes things even worse... and ultimately leaves Annie alone and in danger. Can her dolphin friend help her when she needs it most?
Miss Grace saw this book first at her school's book fair. She had only so much money to spend and opted not to get this book on the first day. No surprise, when I gave her the money the next day, she found it was already sold out! So she was thrilled to be able to read this ebook and find out why everyone wanted it so much! So here is her review:
"This is a great book, I liked how Annie had problems with her friends, when she started spending more time with the dolphin. As I know when you spend alot of time doing things you love, your friends can feel left out, if they aren't involved, and sometimes they end up not being your friends anymore. I really like dolphins, and I want to be a vet when I grow up, so I liked reading this book a lot. I would really recommend it as a good book to read, as it teaches you about what friendship really means. "
