My daughter has been asking for this book since receiving a book about fairies by the same author. Three Little Mermaids exceeded our expectations, with beautiful pictures and sturdy moving parts. Appropriate for preschool through early elementary.

I bought the book because the cover resembled my three granddaughters...a blonde, a brunette, and a readhead, though I didn't know what to expect. It is a thick cardboard book with beautiful colors, durable activity features and cute story. I just couldn't be more pleased and the granddaughters love it!

Our granddaughter loves this mermaid book! She has a great time feeling all the different tactile spots in it, especially the sticky octopus. The author must be related to Matthew Van Fleet because the book has a similar "feeling" and his books are also just grand!!!

The book is sweet and there are a number of "interactive" elements (for example, a moveable mermaid tail on the front cover). It's mainly a counting book though so the story is very basic and some of the rhymes are a bit odd. Overall, cute if your child is still learning to count to ten otherwise I'd skip it...my daughter knows her numbers much higher than that and got bored very quickly.

I was unimpressed by the words of this counting book. It does not tell a story or teach anything. The lines are rhymes about starfish and mermaids having a tea party. There are moving parts that were poorly made and two that were missing parts but in my case the seller refunded us so that was great customer service.

As another reviewer said, my 4-year-old daughter also wanted this book after reading the fairies book by this author. She loves this one just as much. Beautiful artwork, cute story. My daughter loves the moving parts, the different textures, and the beautiful colors. Just beware if trying to buy the book at a lower price from another seller. I went for the highest-priced seller on the "new books" list, and the book obviously was NOT new, as it was missing a couple key moving parts. I did not have time to try for an exchange since it was close to Christmas. As a review of the product itself, I highly recommend the book.
UPDATE: The seller contacted me. Though it was AFTER Christmas already, the seller did apologize for the mistake in sending a damaged book, and the seller sent me a new, undamaged book free of charge. It arrived within a few days. Not ideal, but I did appreciate the effort by the seller to amend his mistake.

I am buying a second copy of this book and getting another copy for a friend, as my 16-month old twins loved it so much that we've worn through the binding. I do not blame the book - when I first got it my girls would calmly listen while I read it to them, but over time they became fascinated by the moving parts and 'explored' by trying to take the pages apart... It is still a favorite of theirs almost a year later. In fact, one of their first words was 'mermaid' (which they pronounced muw-maid), since we called it the 'mermaid book' and read it almost every day for weeks. Even now one of them will carry it to any adult in the vicinity, and simply present the book with a command of 'mermaid!'. I like that it is a cute and colorful story, each page has some interactive feature (bumpy starfish, sticky octopus, hiding seahorses), plus it's a counting book!

Charming little interactive numbers book for wee folk. Each page has interactive features, some of which are discrete so little ones can have the joy of discovery (for example, the "furry seals" have texture on their bodies). It's a sturdy book which looks like it will stand up well to toddler book abuse; it does have strong pull tabs & fold outs but these features naturally need a bit more restraint during repeated use. I'd have given it 5 stars if the text poetry had flowed a little more naturally but overall an excellent book that I'm happy to have purchased. The young lady for whom it was purchased was delighted with it (she's 2).
