Very cute little counting story staring three friendly mermaids. Wish that people would take care of library books better. All of the moveable items were ripped out. Shame on people who let their kids treat books so poorly. I definitely don't allow my daughter do this no matter the age! And she's two and treats books better. Yes some are ripped but they are coloring books not her other books!

Three Little Mermaids by Mara Van Fleet has been a huge hit with my nieces, ages 1 and 5 since they first got their hands on it. The 1 year old loves the colors and the actions in this extremely cute pop-up book. The 5 year old likes to sit with her sister and show her everything to touch and feel within the story of Three Mermaids inviting their undersea friends to tea.

Counting along with the actions and r

This is a hands-on book that uses alliterations to teach counting from one to ten. Three mermaids are having a party and different sea creatures are invited. Each grouping does something at the party and there is a texture associated with each number rhyme. For instance there was a sticky fish and bumpy fishes. It is a simplistic book and could be useful for engaging students in trying to count each of the things on each page. The different textures can help draw the students into using their ...more

In this concept book, three little mermaids host a tea party and invite their water-dwelling friends to come along. Young readers will love seeing the sticky treats brought by the octopus as well as the eight sea horses that are playing hiding seek. Side tabs allow readers to make a mermaid's tale wiggle and move a turtle's shell. The final page directs readers to lift the shell to see how many friends came to the party. The concept of counting might need some adult direction since there is so ...more

I bought this book a while ago for the younger children I was teaching at the time mainly because it had mermaids in it and I had a few children that were interested in this topic.

The book is well presented. It is a touchy- feely, pop up book in hardcover with great colours and sparkles. If I was basing my review purely on the look of this book it would be a five star, but I am not.

The rhyming story line was a bit of a let down for me. The prose feel clunky and awkward in places and as a read al

Three Little Mermaids, by Mara Van Fleet, is an excellent fantasy book for children of the nursery through primary age range. In the book, three little mermaids have a tea party in the ocean. They invite all their friends. The book is a good resource for teaching counting to younger children. As the mermaids are having their tea party, they invite many of their other sea creature friends, from one friendly octopus, six dancing sea turtles, even three seals who sing to the mermaids.
Very cute. But then again, the story had me asking the difficult questions, like how can one serve a cup of tea in the bottom of the ocean? And how can a lollipop be sticky at the bottom of the ocean... wouldn't the salty ocean water dissolve it?

My daughter really liked the variety of things to do - pull tabs, push tabs, shiny, texture, lift-the-flap.
