Attention little mermaids in and around Berlin, MD! We will visit World of Toys for a mermaid event on Sunday, July 9, 1pm-3pm, to celebrate The Mermaid in Rehoboth Bay, which recently won a first-place award from the National Federation of Press Women. Children attending the mermaid event will be able to hear the story read by a “real” mermaid, color a mermaid picture, and sample “mermaid food” (goldfish crackers). Every child who attends the mermaid event will receive a free mermaid sticker. Nancy Sakaduski, the author of The Mermaid in Rehoboth Bay, will be on hand to personally inscribe and sign her book. Children are welcome to come in costume (as mermaids or other sea creatures) if they wish.
The Mermaid in Rehoboth Bay
The Mermaid in Rehoboth Bay is getting rave reviews from parents and librarians as well as children and recently won a national first-place award from the National Federation of Press Women. The book’s enchanting illustrations depict two characters: a girl who lives near the sea but is afraid of the water, and a child-like mermaid who is washed into a bay during a storm and is now far from home. The realistic, age-appropriate characters appeal to children and the imaginative highly detailed illustrations captivate young and old readers alike. The book celebrates the beauty of the sea and tidal areas and depicts two strong female characters who confront their fears and achieve their goals on their own. The book is available only through stores and the Cat & Mouse Press website.
World of Toys is located at 115 N. Main St. in Berlin, Maryland. The store offers a wide range of educational toys, games, puzzles, and other fun things for kids. For additional information, call (410) 641-0601.
