i bought this book for my 6 yr old niece because she loves mermaids and this book is full of objects that she can point out and name. the colors are so vibrant and its a really good quality book! there was one reviewer who said they didnt like the book because it made sharks out to be scary and i also dont agree with making children afraid of sharks because 100s of millions get murdered each year. however this is a juvenile fiction book. we have to explain to children that what they see in books and movies are people and animals that are exaggerated because when they grow up you wont be able to hide shark movies from them. the book is amazing!
