About the Book

Read and find out about dolphin communication in this colorfully illustrated nonfiction picture book.

Did you know that dolphins have their own language, called delphinese? Dolphins communicate with each other through whistles, squeals, clicks, and jaw claps. Just like humans, they exchange information, warn of danger, and communicate their feelings.

Dolphin Talk reveals some remarkable facts about dolphins and their ability to "talk" with each other and with their human friends. Also included are activities that explore how dolphins talk to each other.
