American Bookdealers Exchange
Children's Book of the Year 1996
"Rarely does a book
come along that has the potential to inspire children on as
many levels as does Dream of Dolphins Dancing.
Environmentally correct, vividly descriptive narrative
stimulates curiosity and promotes an early love of sea life.
Professionally painted, full page illustrations celebrate the
undersea world in visual explosions that call to children's
senses and awaken emerging imaginations and fantasies.
But it is the
gentle flow of the tale itself , that piques children's
interests while sending a strong emotional message that calls
each child to personal environmental action.
This very special book is
sure to tug at heart strings of young and old alike as it
empowers the human spirit to dare to believe that maybe, just
maybe one very small person really can make a difference. To
share this book with your family is to embark on an adventure
that might just change your life"
