The vibrant colors I think is what my 2 1/2 year old is attracted to, but since she keeps wanting to read it tells me it was worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars 6 yr old daughter very much enjoyed March 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My daughter loves to read. So when I saw this was free I grabbed it up. As soon as I told her I had a new book on the Kindle for her, she couldn't wait to dive in. She loved the story. I asked her to tell me a few words that would say how she feels about the overall story and these are her words: interesting, fantastic, and I didn't want to stop reading. She loves the pictures, especially the beautiful mermaids and the cute little minnow.

Therefore from her reaction and her wanting to read this story again, I say it's worth each star I gave.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kristi's Book Nook March 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's time for little minnow to go to bed. Mama minnow always reads him a story, usually about mermaids. This night is no different but there is one little exception to the story. Little minnow is not interested, so Mama minnow continues to encourage him to listen all the way through this very strange story. The story she tells is of a little mermaid who is very unique. This little mermaid named Finnoor was very special, but she didn't think so. She couldn't sing beautiful songs like the other mermaids and her tail didn't have shiny beautiful scales. Her furry tale was tangled and puffy and she tried everything to tame her fur, but no matter what she did it hadn't cured the problem. It made her feel miserable that the other mermaids made fun of her. But one day, the sea became very cold from an iceberg and froze all the other mermaids in an ice cube. The fur on Finnoor's tale kept her warm and free from the ice. If that wasn't bad enough sharks came lurking and bullied the other sea creatures. Finnoor become anger and her tale grew and grew. She wove a net with her long fur and took the sharks away. She then wrapped her fur around the frozen mermaids and gave them the biggest warmest hug she could and they were thawed. At the end of the story little minnow asked if the mermaids thanked Finnoor, but before his Mama could answer he had dozed to sleep.

This cute mermaid tale is a great bedtime story that can be shared on any ebook reader. Readers will learn tolerance and to love and except who they are and to embrace their differences. Bright colorful illustrations make for a fun read that young readers will enjoy.

My 5 year old daughter really enjoyed this story. Wasn't super long but nice enough for a somewhat quick bed time story. Illustration was fantastic and looked great on my Kindle Fire. She wants us to read it over and over.
