Merchild Land on Amazon

Begin an adventure under the sea with the mermaids and merchildren, and then sail the ocean of the evening sky on the waves of the Milky Way. Merchild Land is a children's whimsical, sleepytime story that explores the magic of the sea creating a soothing mood of wistful verse. Illustrated in soft pastels. What better gift, than to give a child a book. Think about a warm lap and a storybook, what is there not to love. Reading to a child can be the key that turns a child on to reading. Beginning with a picture book that is written in rhythmic verse is a lovely little place where adults and children’s’ minds meet. I am an author whose proceeds are all donated to the American Bladder Cancer Society. It would make a great gift for any child 0 - 9 yrs old.

Merchild Land is a delightful children's story that will keep both child and adult captivated with its lovely lyrical verse. This is a perfect bedtime story that will send you little one off to the land of mermaids, merchildren and all the wonders under the sea until evening. As the shadows fall, and it is time for bed the children dream of flying high above the mermaids’ ocean home, sailing the sky’s misty sea above the waves’ highest dome on a boat of golden sails, and silvery wings. They visit strange lands as they ride the waves of the Milky Way , talk to the man in the moon, and dine with kings sailing the whole night through.

Your child will delight in the magical and whimsical world where anything is possible. It is a positive and wonderful book for children and people of all ages. What a fantastic gift to give to someone you care about, or to a school or library. It is sure to bring continuous smiles for years to come! The proceeds of this book are given to the American Bladder Cancer Society. 

The perfect bedtime book for small ones that is illustrated with soft pastel illustrations of the ocean, sea bed, beach, and sailing the evening sky with wonderous with wonders to see with the merchildren.  

In my earlier years of teaching, my eldest granddaughter rode to her school with me, and she always wanted me to tell her stories about mermaids.  Later, I wrote a poem about childhood and mermaids (which I have included in the back of the book), and that was the beginning of the book.  I wrote it for my granddaughter, who is now grown, but I wanted her to have something to share with her children.  The color scheme is related to my childhood, and a book that I had as a child that has been kept and cherished over the years.  My wish is that this book will be one that some other children will want to keep and cherish. 

When we start to yawn from a busy day’s work,we will ride a whale to dive down deep

To our castle in the sand by a hidden cave to the ocean bed for a good night’s sleep.

While whales and starfish sing lullabies and the last little mermaid sleepy-head

Gets her blanket made of sea-fan lace,
puts the catfish out and goes to bed.

As a father of 7 and Grandfather of 26 I have found Merchild Land to be a book cherished by my kids and their kids. It is a nice to see a book that has the flavor of childerns books before these days of political correctness. The illustrations are immaginative and should be a great hit at bedtime.

A whimsical journey to a magical, undersea land awaits readers and small children who venture through the pages of Merchild Land.
Sylvia Ramsey has created a wonderful sleepy time book that conjures images of mermaids, seahorses and schools of fish in a make-believe land under the ocean waves. The poem found between the covers are excellent for children (especially young girls) ages 4-13. Ms. Ramsey wrote this book with her granddaughter in mind, whom she, “insisted I tell her about little mermaids and merchildren.”
My two step-daughters enjoyed the book immensely and said they were even able to use their imagination to visualize the various sea creatures that Ms. Ramsey wrote about in the poetry. I had the fortunate amazement that my youngest one even said she had dreams of mermaids and seahorses the following morning!
Highly recommended!!!

One of the most delightful children’s stories that I have had the experience to read! This Christmas I purchased four books to give to my grandchildren. They loved the merchildren and other creatures found in Merland – lots of questions were asked – a lot of learning took place and continues. A feature that I thought was great were the three or four blank pages at the back of the book that allow parents to write down childhood experiences that occur with their children as they grow. I’m sure my grandchildren will enjoy hearing about their young adventures after growing up. I remember my sons asking me about what they did when they were young. I highly recommend this lovely book.

We read this story at bedtime last night, and my kids loved it. This is one that we will surely read for a long time to come!
