about this book: Dolphin Girl is based on a beautiful conversation I had with my daughter, Izarah, about the sea and dolphins and pollution and how humans interact with the marine environment. She is unschooled, and we love the sea and spend as much time there as possible.

Dolphin Girl - First Contact is the first of many books to come, both in this series and other books. Izarah and I felt that this may be a way of getting more people involved in marine and environmental awareness via a beautiful story about a girl, who through an event that happened prior to her birth, ended up with the ability to change into a dolphin when she enters the sea. First Contact explores her discovery of this ability and her first underwater meeting with the monarchy of the dolphin kingdom. It is filled with exciting adventures and discoveries and the series will continue to develop this theme.

The book was easy to write because the words seemed to place themselves on the paper, nearly as if they wanted to be read…. It also helped me break my fear of writing books and has opened a floodgate in me that now needs expressing. I hope you enjoy the book and all the others still to come.

What a wonderful way to spend an evening together as a family! I have 3 children, aged 11 and 8 (twins) and we all took turns reading out loud and discussing what we had read. We couldn't put it down! The story was the perfect combination of facts about the ocean, beautiful descriptive words (which allowed for the children's imagination to kick in) together with a sense of adventure. There was also a very clear and deep meaning to the story. We can't wait for Izarah's next adventure!
