"Terry Treetop Saves the Dolphin" Children's Book Review
Hey folks! It's been a LONG time since we've done a book review! Let's start out 2015 with this cute, but educational tale from Tali Carmi.
Terry Treetop Saves the Dolphin starts off with Terry Treetop, as he's known for his love of climbing trees, and his family vacationing at a marine nature preserve. He wants to check things out early one morning and decides the best way to do that is by climbing up a tree, where he discovers a group of dolphins playing nearby. Eager to play with the dolphins, he hurries down the tree and heads for the dock. All of the adult dolphins are leery of Terry, but one baby dolphin is just as curious about Terry as he is of the dolphin.
Sadly, as the baby dolphin is swimming over to Terry, he gets caught in a fisherman's net. Luckily, Terry is able to find a park ranger to help the little dolphin out and he even gets to play with him after all afterwards!
Intended for children ages 2-8, I think this story would appeal to both boys and girls and would make a great read out loud book or a read alone book for young elementary school children. This story helps teach children several important things, including problem solving, responsibility, and an appreciation for nature and protecting wildlife. Terry Treetop Saves the Dolphin is also full of simple, colorful pictures and straight forward text so children won't get bored.
You can find this lovely little e-book for just $1.00 for your Kindle device on Amazon. (You can also purchase it in paperback for $8.80 HERE.)
