When I was little, I really, really wished mermaids were real, and I'm sure I'm not alone. There's a reason that mermaids continue to fascinate generations of children (and adults). The beautiful, graceful creatures we read about in Peter Pan or The Little Mermaid or The Chronicles of Narnia symbolize everything good and beautiful and magical in the world.
Here'a book that's guaranteed to bring out your inner child -- Last Night I Swam with a Mermaid. The story is about a young girl who meets a mermaid and goes on a journey through the oceans. What makes this book truly special are the photographs.... oh, the photographs....
How could anyone doubt that mermaids exist after seeing these photographs? They are truly magical, and guaranteed to spark hours of pleasant daydreaming for your children.
But this is more than just a storybook. It teaches kids the importance of our oceans, how to recycle and how to conserve water. The beautiful photos do more than inspire kids to imagine and dream -- by showing kids the magic and wonder of the ocean, they inspire kids to want to protect it. Beauty with purpose -- what more could you ask for?
About the book
Last Night I Swam With A Mermaid is a magical tale spun by author Kimberly Muller and brought to life by her husband, world- renowned photographer, Michael Muller. Together they create a world in which a young girl meets a beautiful mermaid who takes her on an unforgettable ocean journey. As the adventure unfolds, we learn the valuable lesson to Respect and Protect our planet. The mermaid reminds us that it is up to me and it's up to you to make a difference and to never stop dreaming.
