Mimi the Mermaid and the Pearl Necklace is a book born out of the imagination and creativity of two sisters, 9 year-old Sydney and 7-year Jordan.
Assisted by their mother, the girls endeavored to create a story with a positive message about a mermaid girl and her realization of beauty and self-worth.
This whimsical tale takes you on a journey into the deep blue ocean with Mimi the Mermaid. From the discovery of a pearl, Mimi learns about one of nature’s best treasures…herself. Traveling through this vibrantly illustrated underwater world, the story promotes discussions about self esteem, the meaning of beauty, and friendship.
