Time sure does fly and now my 9 year old loves to sit and read chapter books all by herself with no help from me. It feels like that is a huge milestone and I am so proud of her. Next up is Lil Sis as she has just turned 6 and is learning how to read. I get to sit and read to her all the time and I have only very recently introduced her to some early chapter books. Purrmaids is an all-new chapter book series for girls ages 6 – 9 and is perfect for both my daughters. Combining you guessed it….cats and mermaids into one loveable creature. They live in the ocean but they have everyday issues with friends, family and school just like any other character would.
Coral, Shelly, and Angel are best friends. They love exploring their home in Kittentail Cove. On the first day of sea school, their teacher asks everyone to bring in something special to share with the class. Shelly and Angel can’t wait to visit Tortoiseshell Reef to find an extra-special treasure. But the reef is all the way on the edge of the cove and Coral is scared to swim that far away from home. Can this scaredy-cat learn to be brave?
Coral, Shelly, and Angel are best friends, and school is always paw-some as long as they have each other! So when their teacher assigns an art project, the girls can’t wait to get up to their whiskers in paint and glitter! But three other students—the Catfish Club—are trying to ruin the fun. They’re three tough kittens who think they’re the best at everything. Will Angel and her friends dive headfirst into trouble with the Catfish Club?
They are short books, big font and includes scattered black and white illustrations making this great for those just being introduced to chapter books. The stories are easy for younger readers to follow and understand it they expectantly are full of extra cuteness but that is what little readers enjoy! This series is an instant success in my house. Big Sis and Lil Sis are both asking me when the next books in the series are coming out. I love when they really get into a book series that much! Stay on the lookout for the next volumes in the series and consider giving these first two books in the series to some early readers this holiday season as they would make a fun gift!
