Help your child discover self-confidence and find their inner flow by diving deep into the magical world of Mermaidia. Venus Underwater: Songs from Mermaidia introduces the underwater world of Mermaidia. This humorous and whimsical collection of poems and songs reveals how baby mermaids are made, what mermaid families are like, and how mermaids study magic at School of the Fish to become Sea Witches (not Sand Witches). Created by family therapist Julia Hengst the Venus and Her Fly Trip series helps nurture the whole child, promoting self-esteem, confidence and social/emotional/mental health in a fun, playful way.
Full of insights from over a decade in counseling psychology, the book weaves important messages about self confidence, equality, body positivity and inclusion into its funny and pun-filled poems and songs. Thanks to an enchanted cast of marine characters like Octomom (#realoctomom), Dr. You Manatee, a sea cow who teaches Emoceans, and the mermaid Venus Greenus, whose story will be followed throughout the entire series, the book envisions a world full of inter-species harmony, kindness and emotional intelligence, and invites those qualities to open in the readers' minds.
