Amazon calculates a product’s star ratings based on a machine learned model instead of a raw data average. The model takes into account factors including the age of a rating, whether the ratings are from verified purchasers, and factors that establish reviewer trustworthiness.
The book is beautifully illustrated. The story is just ok. It's not really all that creative and the constant rhyming is irritating. I was expecting more and my daughter and I found ourselves let down after reading it the first time. We really had high expectations based on the other reviews and the fact that my daughter loves mermaids.
I bought this on our last grocery trip for my mermaid obsessed 4 year-old, the pictures are cute, but frankly the story is lacking even for a modern children's book. I own better written toddler board books. I wish I hadn't wasted money on it.
