Explore and Learn with Silver Dolphin Books! (GIVEAWAY)

My seven-year-old boys are still not of the age where they love reading, so it often takes a very unique book to interest them. That’s why they’re always excited about picking up a book from Silver Dolphin Books. You could never call their books ordinary! Check out the following book series to see what I mean…

Amazing X-Rays Series


These amazing books feature built-in light box technology and 16 acetate x-rays so that kids can see the details only doctors and veterinarians see. Each title includes photos, illustrations, and informative text. (Ages: 8 and up)

Big Book of Activity Fun Series


With punch-out pieces, coloring pages, word searches, mazes, and more than 150 colorful stickers, this series will keep kids having fun -- and learning -- for hours! (Ages: 4 and up)

The Field Guide Series


Filled with interesting maps, sketches, and engaging field notes, these journals document the fictional experiences of naturalists. Readers learn about eight different creatures and can then construct models to play with in a diorama. (Ages: 8 and up)

Gakken Workbooks Series


Each activity in the Gakken Workbooks builds upon others to reinforce important concepts while gradually improving a child’s ability to reason, make decisions, and concentrate. The books include reward stickers, project stickers, and a wipe-clean activity board. (Ages: 2-6)

My children received an amazing book called Learning in Action: Dinosaurs!


About the book: Prehistoric beasts come roaring to life in Learning in Action: Dinosaurs. Before kids even crack the cover, the adrenaline-pumping action begins with a touch of a button as a ferocious embossed T. Rex awakens with a mighty roar and fierce, red glowing eyes. As they journey inside the book, kids will encounter a 3-D pop-up of a baby Eoraptor hatching from its egg and hear its cries, as well as come face-to-face with a deadly Allosaurus! This fantastic book is bursting with cool illustrations, dynamic pop-ups, sound effects, lift-the-flap excitement, and plenty of facts about dinosaurs. My boys love this book and have asked to look at it over and over again. It’s so interactive that they don’t even realize that they’re learning. It’s fun!

Another incredible book my children received from Silver Dolphin Books is called BUGS: The Ultimate Guide to the World of Bugs.


About the book: Discover everything you need to know about insects, arachnids and other bugs with this remarkable title. It includes a fully illustrated book that explores butterflies and moths, flies and beetles, and social insects such as ants and bees, as well as spiders and worms. Seven tabbed dividers provide easy navigation between sections and the detailed text is written and checked by experts. There are two large color posters, one detailing extreme bugs -- many shown at actual size -- and another providing a colorful spotter’s guide for bugs in your local park or garden. The easy-to-assemble tarantula model allows you to be creative by building your own bug. This book is amazing, and my boys can’t stop looking at it. The other night we were talking about spiders, and my kids pulled out this book to read more about them. Love it!

Silver Dolphin Books make very impressive gifts for the children and teachers in your life! They’re fascinating, educational, and fun. If your kids are like mine, they’ll pick up these books because they WANT to, not because I ask. Learn more through the links below.

  19. Hi Susan,

    I think all 3 of our kids would like "The Wonders of the Human Body". We really like the fact type books, plus they really have a lot of questions about health topics because of the experiences we have been faced with.
    Thank you!
