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.
