i bought this book for my 6 yr old niece because she loves mermaids and this book is full of objects that she can point out and name. the colors are so vibrant and its a really good quality book! there was one reviewer who said they didnt like the book because it made sharks out to be scary and i also dont agree with making children afraid of sharks because 100s of millions get murdered each year. however this is a juvenile fiction book. we have to explain to children that what they see in books and movies are people and animals that are exaggerated because when they grow up you wont be able to hide shark movies from them. the book is amazing!
A cute book. About second grade level reader. We got it for a ten year olds birthday, wrote inside the year and who gave it. She loves mermaids and so do my girls. They had already pre-approved. Cute story Beautiful illustrations.
My 6 month old daughter LOVES this book... she laughs and giggles while she's drinking her milk before bed. When we finish the book she does her best Robert Shaw impression from Jaws. She can't really speak yet, but when she says "Dah Dah" I know she really wants to say "Dah- ya know the ting about a mermaid, chief?... Got black lifeless eyes, like a dolls eyes."
My toddler is obsessed with mermaids so this book was a no brainer. We love the “How to catch a” series after finding how to catch an elf around Christmas. These books are beautifully illustrated and well written.
I bought this for my granddaughter who will be 5 this week. I had it sent to my home, but then the whole virus this meant they couldn't visit this month, so I mailed it as one of her Birthday presents. The story and words are less complex than what I had expected from the description, which means she will soon be able to read it herself. The illustrations and colors were really impressive. The cover of the book is thick and hard and the pages appear to be of a quality that will hold up impatient hands of little kids. I would suggest this for kids 3 to 7, depending on their reading ability at the upper age end.
I like the story, it's super cute and rhymes so it is catchy. My daughter really only likes when books rhyme from page to page. The colors are really pretty also. I feel like the vocabulary is great from younger ages up to older kids. I fell it will be a great book for her to learn from. I'm very pleased with it, and so is my daughter! Sometimes she wants me to read it back to back.
I enjoy reading to my little one. This book arrived very fast and we read it immediately. We both enjoyed it equally. The pictures are colorful and bright. The story is cute and there is a good amount of new words to learn. I also ordered another book in the series, got it yesterday, equally as amazing! Thank you for writing such cute stories and illustrating beautiful images.
