ABOUT THE BOOK

When Dottie Dolphin dives deep into the ocean to play hide-and-seek with her siblings, she discovers a wonderful world of ocean animals. Join Dottie and her new friends beneath the waves in this interactive story with flaps to lift and colorful, detailed underwater scenes by best-selling nature illustrator Maurice Pledger.

REVIEW
Dottie Dolphin is a beautiful book with fun flaps to uncover throughout the book.  The story follows Dottie Dolphin as she searches for her siblings throughout the ocean.  The illustrations are gorgeous with all sorts of bright colorful sea creatures lighting up the pages.   The writing is also really good which is impressive for a board book.  This is a board book that any young reader can appreciate, not only for it's beauty but for the information it presents about life under the sea and the creatures that live there. Highly recommended.
