The Little Mermaid

By Emanuel Berger | September 22 2022 | Children's

In folklore, a mermaid is an aquatic creature with the head and upper body of a female human and the tail of a fish

Ariel is a curious young mermaid. She likes to explore sunken ships, swim up to the surface, and learn all she can about the world above the sea. Then she falls in love with a human.

The new live-action adaptation of the 1989 animated film, loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen’s classic, is scheduled to be released in the United States on May 26, 2023. The upcoming American musical fantasy film will be directed by Rob Marshall with new music by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Julián Is a Mermaid
9780763690458
Winner of a 2019 Stonewall Book AwardIn an exuberant picture book, a glimpse of costumed mermaids leaves one boy flooded with wonder and ready to dazzle the world.While riding the subway home from the pool with his abuela one day, Julián notices three women spectacularly dressed up. Their hair billows in brilliant hues, their dresses end in fishtails, and their joy fills the train car. When Julián gets home, daydreaming of the magic he’s seen, all he can think about is dressing up just like the ladies in his own fabulous mermaid costume: a butter-yellow curtain for his tail, the fronds of a potted fern for his headdress. But what will Abuela think about the mess he makes — and even more importantly, what will she think about how Julián sees himself? Mesmerizing and full of heart, Jessica Love’s author-illustrator debut is a jubilant picture of self-love and a radiant celebration of individuality.

The Little Mermaid
9780679822417
Hans Christian Andersen's classic story is beautifully adapted for young readers. When the little mermaid gives up her voice in exchange for legs and a chance to meet her beloved human prince, she earns a real human soul. Step 3 Readers are perfect for children who are ready to read to themselves. At forty-eight pages, Step 3 books are both longer and slightly more difficult than Step 2 books. This level includes some more challenging vocabulary and concepts, though the meaning is made clear through context and illustrations.
