SEA ME READ: If a Dolphin Were a Fish

from Mote Marine Laboratory - SEA Trek

Program image

 Join Delfina the dolphin as she imagines that she becomes other animals. Readers will watch Delfina become a fish with gills, a sea turtle laying eggs, a pelican with feathers, an octopus without bones, a shark with a sense of smell and even a vegetarian manatee. The incredible “morphing” illustrations will have children laughing as they learn about the real differences between these animals! Join us on this ocean adventure as we discover what makes a mammal a mammal and how creatures have adapted to live in the sea.

A special thanks to Arbordale Publishing for making this lesson possible.
