I love reviewing children’s books because they are the one thing that bring back beauty, fun, and good, old-fashioned excitement. This book is a new one that parents will love sitting and reading to their kids. Teens are not the only ones who are ‘into’ the mystical realm - younger kids love it too. And with the absence of Potter, they’re not getting many mystical books now. This book, of course, is a great deal smaller than Rowling’s offering, however the fact that we are looking for mermaids on a beach is a lot of fun! The author and illustrator use anime as well as real photographs of children looking around the beach in all niches and crevices in order to find those mystical little mermaids that hold magic in their hearts and souls. From leaving petals of Queen Anne’s Lace as an offering for the mermaids, to imagining the hard-to-get sea creatures playing tag in the coral reefs with their best-buddies, the seahorses, that dwell there, each page is an adventure that you and your kids will love. So take a look at the inner-workings of the ocean. Listen to the sounds of whispers in the conch shells, and search for that spark of glistening water that will point the way to making friends with the magical mermaids! And…enjoy! Quill Says: A true delight for both children and parents.

read 2/26 pub may 15, 2012 The Tiptoe Guide to Tracking Mermaids by ISBN: 9781933718590 Illustrated Colorful children book about how to track a mermaid on the sand at the beach by their footprints. Also shows pictures of various things that can be found at the beach where you might see a mermaid: tide pools, shells that resemble a mermaids comb or use it as a necklace. Mermaids hide on each page according to what's being said so it's also a puzzle type book for a child to locate the mermaids. One shell in particular holds the secret to where the mermaids are... Gorgeous pictures!

The Tiptoe Guide to Tracking Mermaids is a picture book written by Ammi-Joan Paquette and illustrated by Marie LeTourneau. This book combines real photographs of a trip to the beach with paper cut outs of mermaids and other creatures. The story is about children who visit the beach on a day where there are not many people around to look for mermaids. They make sand mermaids (like snow angels), visit tide pools, watch crabs, collect shells etc. all with the idea of what the mermaids would do with those objects and things. Nature facts about the beach and what can be seen there, come together in a beautiful book. The Tiptoe Guide to Tracking Mermaids is the newest addition to the Tiptoe Guide series that explores nature and the joy of fantasy in childhood (and beyond). The combination of beach and ocean facts with the sheer fun of seeking mermaids will delight readers both young and old. Who wouldn't enjoy searching for mermaids. I received a copy of this book from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
