Therefore from her reaction and her wanting to read this story again, I say it's worth each star I gave.
Note that I don't really do stars. To me a book is either worth reading or it isn't. I can't rate it three-fifths worth reading! The only reason I've relented and started putting stars up there is to credit the good ones, which were being unfairly uncredited. So, all you'll ever see from me is a five-star or a one-star (since no stars isn't a rating, unfortunately).
I rated this book WORTHY!
Sorry there are no inside images here. I read this on my phone! Yes, olde fashionede print book me! But how convenient is it that you can entertain your kids with reading material on your phone?
So, this is a really short bed-time or kids are feeling down kinda story about a mermaid who happens to have been born with fur instead of scales. Hmmm! Naturally she feels like a freak, and other mermaids make fun of her until it turns suddenly very cold in the neighborhood. I wonder who the most popular mer-person is then, huh?
I love that this story celebrates being different not as a handicap or a problem, but as a positive thing - even an essential thing that others will come to appreciate you for if you give them half a chance. Don't back down. Don't get down on yourself. Think positively and you're halfway there. I recommend this one.
Brilliant colored children's story of a minnow and his mom is going to read him a story as he gets tucked inside his coral bed at the bottom of the ocean.
The story of the mermaid seems to be the same as all the other stories but it's not....
A fur tail on a mermaid? wow! The minnow was sad the fur mermaid couldn't do things the other mermaids could but his mom said to be patient and listen to the rest of the story...
Some pages are hard to read as the color of the font is black on a dark background.
Other works by the author are highlighted at the end along with a link for a free audio book.
Finoor is a beautiful mermaid, but there is one very big thing that’s different about her. Finoor does everything she can to make her fin look shiny and sleek like the other mermaids, who make fun of her.
One day an iceberg floats into the mermaid’s part of the ocean and it becomes so cold the other mermaids freeze into a huge ice cube. But not Finoor. She doesn’t freeze; she doesn’t get cold. But something happens to her tail.
Then some unsavory sharks show up. They size up the rest of the sea creatures. The fish cry. Finoor cries. Then she gets angry and does something incredible.
Well, a couple of incredible things, and all of the other mermaids learn a very important lesson.
It's time for bed and little Minnow wants to hear a bedtime story, but he doesn't want it to be an average run of the mill mermaid story. Mama Minnow promises this one to be unlike any he's ever heard before. Reluctantly little Minnow agrees to listen unaware that he's in for a very big surprise.
I just love the title of this book! Although "Furmaid" starts out as a word used to tease Finnoor it later becomes a term of endearment, one that reminds us just how special she truly is.As the other mermaids torment her, she begins to feel bad about herself and wishes she wasn't different. But, when the mermaids and sea creatures are in trouble Finnoor wastes no time coming to the rescue with the very thing everyone has been poking fun at. The message of this story is clear and teaches children to be themselves and embrace their differences. They also learn to always have a kind heart even towards those who may not show kindness in return.
I highly recommend picking up a copy of Furmaid.
