So, you might know how to catch a mermaid, but do you know how some mermaids came to be?
Not swimming as a human
A mermaid you will be
With a tail glowing turquoise
Splashing water playfully…
Maiden Mermaid: The Tale of Sirena is a Texas family folktale written in lyrical language about a young, impetuous Native American maiden who makes a deal with a talking catfish to win her true love. All Sirena wanted was her “happily ever after.”
Like many stories of old, the endings aren’t always as expected, yet there are essential life lessons to promote discussions and deeper thinking:
- Being patient
- Trusting carefully
- Making wise choices
- Imagining what happens next
Children, parents, teachers, grandparents, and lovers of myths, legends, fairytales, and folktales will be captivated by Maiden Mermaid.
