My daughter has enjoyed this book
Reviewed in the United States on March 31, 2017
I have a feeling that I'll be criticized for this review with all of the other 4 & 5 star reviews already out there, but I write honestly and possibly from a different point of view from other reviewers.
Third grade mermaid reminds me of the sassy and self- indulgent girls that I try to steer my daughter away from. The character comes across as prissy and often shallow in my adult opinion. My daughter has enjoyed this book, and it has some good lessons in it, so overall it is just ok for us as an occasional read. I don't enjoy reading it with her, and don't love for her to read it very often. We also don't turn to the television to entertain our kids though. Everyone has their own path and I think we will take ours on a different direction.
