Based on the delightful Disney musical, this entertaining tale stars the spirited Ariel, a beautiful mermaid who longs to become a human in order to capture the heart of the dashing Prince Eric. Young readers will delight in the heroine’s courage and love of adventure, and will learn a valuable lesson from her impetuous mistake to trade her voice for legs. A cast of feisty undersea characters joins the Little Mermaid on her escapades, teaching the importance of friendship and fun.
Tie-in Activity: If you live near a beach, go on a shell-gathering expedition and then help your child make her own seashell necklace just like Ariel’s. Or, buy seashells at your local craft store and glue the smaller ones to the outside of a decorative keepsake box.
