"The Book of Mermaids" takes you to a magical world!!!

What a magical book. Especially necessary for those of us that love mermaids! Evoking a feeling of connection to the beauty of the sea, mermaids represent something that we intuitively understand and cherish about the deep. What a treat this book is...just filled with interesting mermaid history and lore. The artwork is so lovely! We always knew mermaids were beautiful and it's such a pleasure to see them illustrated so well. I can't say enough about this book...except, buy it and feel the magic mermaids bring!!

Good for the whole family

One day when I took my little sister to Barnes and Noble I saw this book. I picked it up and thought "My sister would love this!" I leafed through it a bit and thought it was completely compelling. My sister was 5 then and now is 7, and she still reads it every night before bed. We brought it home and my sister asked our mom to read it to her and our mom loved it too. I pick it up sometimes too still, it's very cool. It really makes you feel like the "mer-world" is yours as you're reading it. A must have for every girl out there.

Excellent book

My daughter has been fascinated with mermaids since she was 2. She fell in love with this book. She is now 10 and loves the book. Highly recommended.

From Mary Quattlebaum for Washington Parent

A trip to the shore calls for The Book of Mermaids. Author/illustrator Patricia Saxton draws from many cultures and her own imagination to create a fanciful picture book on merfolk arts, language and family life. These sea creatures (half fish, half human) were revered in ancient times as powerful gods and continue to surface in popular culture....Youngsters will have a great time learning about mermaids' mystical tools (pearls and blue stones), weaving their own mermaid tales and poring over Saxton's shimmering mixed-media illustrations, which further heighten the magical quality of these legendary beings.

A must have ...

For any girl who knows in her heart that mermaids simply and surely must exist, The Book of Mermaids is a must have. Not only does it confirm everything she always knew to be true, it gives a fantastic view, rippling with romance and realism, into the underwater world that seems only a tail-flick away. From merlore and history to details about merfamilies, merfashions and merfestivals, this book is a celebration of fantasy worthy of a reading during Jewel Time festivities. Beautiful, murky water-colored illustrations give a glimpse into a world we all wish to be real.
