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.
Kevin and Jackie are spending the day at the beach enjoying the warm day as they create beautiful masterpieces in the sand. Suddenly something catches Kevin's eye and he's certain it was a dolphin, but when he alerts his sister the dolphin is gone. The dolphin continues to elude Jackie and Kevin begins to think he imagined it all.
Living in San Diego we are frequent beach goers and there is nothing more delightful than seeing the fascination and curiosity of little ones as they experience the sand and surf for the first time. The Disappearing Dolphins, with it's amazing and colorful illustrations, captures the essence of childhood and engages young readers with it's lively plot.
