Here’s a rare, gentle way to share a birth with a child. John Denver’s hauntingly beautiful song “Ancient Rhymes” is about the birth of a baby dolphin, and Christopher Canyon’s luminous illustrations-including a baby dolphin curled up with an umbilical cord and also a live birth-convey a sense of mystery, awe, and anticipation of things to come. The baby soon tastes the air and learns of dolphin ways, much the same way as a human baby does. There’s something magical and indescribable about it-a timeless and endearing lullaby.
