Something tells me Sebastian had a point when he told Ariel life was better under the sea.

This list has something for every mermaid lover!

Mermaid Toys and Books For Small Fry

Julián Is A Mermaid by Jessica Love

While riding the subway one day, Julián notices three spectacularly-dressed women: Their hair billows in brilliant hues, their dresses end in fishtails, and their joy fills the train car. When Julián gets home, daydreaming of the magic he’s seen, all he can think about is dressing up just like the ladies in his own fabulous mermaid costume. Jessica Love’s author-illustrator debut is a radiant celebration of individuality and a story we love.

Join us at your favorite local CAMP store on Saturday, June 26 for a special storytime and craft featuring Julián Is a Mermaid!
