Product Description
The Music of Dolphins is the story of Mila, a child who is found near Cuba after being saved and raised by a pod of dolphins. This book is written at a 4.1 grade reading level.

“At adolescence, the girl is "rescued" by the Coast Guard and turned over to a scientist who has a government grant to study the part language acquisition plays in socialization. Mila, the otherworldly "dolphin girl," is enthusiastic to please, learning to speak words and write her thoughts on a computer, but gradually she understands that she is a prisoner "in the net of humans." She begins to lose ground, regressing physically, begging to be returned to the sea. Deceptively easy in format, this is a complex and demanding book. . . . it is a reminder that the link between humankind and nature is mysterious and ignored at our peril. This powerful exploration of how we become human and how the soul endures is a song of beauty and sorrow, haunting and unforgettable.” (Kate McClelland, Perrot Memorial Library, Greenwich, CT) [taken from Amazon.com]

This novel study includes chapter-by chapter comprehension and inference questions, as well as opportunities for students to create their own higher-level questions to bring to book group discussions.

At the end of the comprehension questions, 55 related activities are included for this book. With hands-on activities, students are encouraged to be engaged thinkers and problem-solvers. These projects can be used with the whole group, small groups, and/or individuals, and are especially helpful in differentiating for diverse learners.
