REVIEW: Mermaids Can Ride Bicycles by Delphina Henley & Deedle Miyares

Mermaids Can Ride Bicycles
Delphina Henley & Deedle Miyares

Meet Mer, a seven year old mermaid who never gives up. When she finds a bicycle, everyone tells her mermaids can't ride bicycles, only humans can. She sets out to prove mermaids CAN ride bicycles. Second Grade Reading Level Chapter Book.

I absolutely loved this story. It's a great reminder, that no matter who you are or old you are, you can do anything that you put your heart into. It's also a great learning tool too. The story-line was awesome and the pictures were drawn magnificently well. They followed right along with the story. I highly recommend this read to all second graders and their parents.

I purchased my copy of this book from the authors at the Once Upon A Book Author Signing in Michigan in August 2016.
