Andy's Book Review: Wild Dolphin Rider

This is the book that the UNH Marine Docents donated to the Gordon-Nash Library when they were here in July and presented their program Whales & Seals. Andy was the first to read this book, and says it's a good story! Here's his review!

Wild Dolphin Rider
by Nancy Donovan
illustrated by Susan Spellman 

I like that the boy lives near the ocean. He meets a magical dolphin who takes him on a journey that shows the boy the wonders and dangers of being a dolphin. The boy learns the dolphin should be protected. He goes home. I liked the book. I would recommend this book. Check it out today.
