Kevin and his twin sister Jackie always enjoy going to the beach with their mommy, but Kevin can tell that today will be extra-special. As he and Jackie start building a sandcastle, Kevin sees a fantastic sight: a dolphin, jumping and playing in the ocean. Kevin is known for his vivid imagination, and when he tells Jackie about the dolphin, she doesn’t believe him. As he watches the joyful antics of the dolphin in the sparkling sea, Kevin is convinced that the dolphin is real—even he couldn’t make up something this fantastic! Determined to share the magic of the dolphin, Kevin sets out on an adventure of discovery that will create lifelong memories for him and for Jackie. With warm, comforting language and beautiful illustrations, The Disappearing Dolphins is sure to become a favorite with anyone who cherishes the wonder of the natural world as seen through children’s eyes.
This is a cute little book that encourages kids to use their imagination and build strong bonds with your family members. The author has a unique writing style that is sure to engage the younger audience and the kids will be able to relate well to the children’s actions. I wasn’t totally impressed with the illustrations present in this book, but you can still see clearly what each picture is and I am sure that young children will still enjoy them. The heart of the author is present in this book and gives the book a lightness of attitude that is desirable in children’s books. So all in all I rate The Disappearing Dolphins 5 out of 5 stars and encourage anyone with youngsters to pick up a copy, you will not be disappointed with it!
