OVERVIEW: (from Amazon)
Water is life, we drink it makes us grow,
Water is fun to swim and splash in, this we all know,
Water must be respected and protected so forever it will flow.
Learn from the Mermaids...they truly know.
Mermaids on Mars is a mystical story that enlightens children on the importance of water in our everyday lives. The Mermaids journey begins on Mars, the fourth planet from the sun. During this time, Mars was abundant in water that flowed across the planets surface.
The Mermaids thrived in this environment as they love water. The mermaids would indulge in long baths and showers, water their gardens for hours and hours until one day the water was gone. Like humans, Mermaids need water to live, so they jumped on their rocket ship and headed to earth. The Mermaids learned from their misuse of water and encourage us all to engage in simple ways to conserve water in our everyday lives. The Mermaids share their tips to saving water and hope their story of their life on Mars will encourage us all to appreciate and respect our natural, precious resource.

MERMAIDS ON MARS teaches children about saving water and how important it is. It's not only educational but fun. The illustrations are bright and go along with the story. This story teaches about how the mermaids want all children to learn about conserving water, using easy and simple things. Water is precious and we don't realize it because we always have it. This is a nice book for young children to learn a valuable lesson. The cover is nice since little ones sometimes have sticky fingers, so it can be wiped off with a damp cloth.
I received this complimentary copy of MERMAIDS ON MARS from Nancy Guettier and Bostick Communications for my unbiased review. No other compensation took place.
I would give this book 5 MERMAIDS.
