Mermaid and the Water Magnifying Glass (Mermaid Science Series) by Lois Wickstrom – Review by Christina Gran

The Mermaid and the Water Magnifying Glass (Mermaid Science, #3)The Mermaid and the Water Magnifying Glass by Lois Wickstrom

Cute, fun read that teaches children science concepts without making it appear to be learning. My 10yr old enjoyed the story and was excited to test out his own water magnifying glass, while my 18 month grandbaby was equally engaged with the beautiful illustrations presented throughout the book! In this third installment of Trezzie and her friends, the group uncovers some fossils, which Wickstrom brings to life for the children with her informative discussion and phenomenal illustrations. Highly recommend for all kiddos. My boys are excited to read the first two books in the series (although each is perfect as a stand alone story).

Mermaid and the Water Magnifying Glass is a part of the Mermaid Science Series by Lois Wickstrom. This is the perfect story to get young kids to get interested in science. The book is good for ages 4-8. The story takes the children through the science process. They are on an adventure to make a magnifying glass out of drops of water. This will pique the interest of girls using Trezzie the mermaid. The characters are unique just like other children. I love the fantasy concept to teach the concept of science to young children. I recommend this story and series for young children.

My youngest loved this book. She was able to read it and learn at the same time. She loves science. It was done in a subtle engaging way that kept her wanting to continue reading until the end.

My daughter is 12 and a tad too old for this book; however she loved it. She does have trouble reading sometimes; which is why I encourage her to read all different genres of books. This was a book she was able to read well and she loved the graphics.

Having said this, this book would be more suited to a child up to 8.

This is my third book from this author. I like her concepts, introduce science to little children her books. The illustrations are bright and neat, and it helps both children and adults realize that science exists in the nature and you can do experiments with very simple tools and you do not need a laboratory.
Trezzie, the mermaid, collects trash which people leave on the shore. When she meets Maia and Fig this time, she is interested to know more about the rocks which has some unusual markings on them. Maia and Fig ,use a plastic fruit box and help make a magnifying glass for Trezzie. Trezzie uses the glass and together they find out that the rocks are actually fossils. The discussion then leads to what Fossils are.

It is a very interesting book to read for both children and adults. I am enjoying reading the books with my boys. I would recommend it to everyone.

Tezzie the mermaid collects trash from the shore and with the help of her friend makes a magnifying glass. They want to take a closer look at a rock they found that has cool markings!

Come to find out it’s a fossil!

These books are so cute science and fantasy and children’s level understanding combine in a way that enraptured my 4 year old. Will be on the look out for more!

This is a really enjoyable children’s book. I recommend this author and this series to any parent or grandparent who have children in their lives that enjoy science. This series is one that any child who loves to explore and discover new things will enjoy. The activities included at the end of the book will make any child happy as it shows them something fun that they can do for themselves.

Maia and Fig are back at the lakeside and this time they are building a tower out of stones when Trezzie the Mermaid comes up to see them with a rock, this rock is too small for the tower that they are building, but when they look closer they can see a pattern in it, so Fig asks Maia what it is, but she can’t tell because it is too small to really see it. When Maia asks for a magnifying glass Fig knows how to make one, so between the tree of them, can Fig, Maia and Trezzie find what they need to make a magnifying glass and what will they find when they do?

This is a charming story which talks about science in a way which is easy and engaging for children, where they can learn useful scientific facts while still being in a land of fantasy.

What another great science learning book in this series. This is such a great tool to help young children learn science. The characters are well written and are able to draw the young child’s attention and aid in their learning process. The author does a great job to to engage the young readers imagination and aid in their learning. The author simplifies the subject and makes it easy to understand. I really recommend this series to anyone who has young children and wants to get their children into loving learning. Definitely worth the read.

“The Mermaid and the Watery Magnifying Glass” was a cute story. Friends, Fig and Maia, are building a stone tower. They get some help from Maia’s mermaid friend, Trezzie. Fig shows them how to make a water magnifying glass to look at the stone Trezzie gave them. I love the characters in this story! Fig and Maia seem to have a close friendship, and Trezzie adds an element of imagination. I did not read the other books in this series, but still found this book enjoyable on its own. I recommend this story for elementary age children, especially children who love science.
