Stunning artwork, imagination, and lyrical prose and rhymes that will engage young readers fill the pages of Venus Underwater: Songs from Mermaidia by Julia Hengst.
Incorporating insights from psychology, mindfulness practices, spirituality, and various healthy traditions to support mental/emotional health and wellness, Hengst has developed this first book in a planned series to promote love, kindness, and acceptance, while encouraging the importance of knowing inner EMOCEANS to help you handle all moods.
By using enchanting creatures like mermaids and made up creatures like Purrmaids, the author makes these concepts easier to digest. The beautiful artwork by Esther Samuels-Davis, which depicts a diverse world, draws the reader deeper into the story. Who wouldn’t want to live in Mermaidia?
I hope we will see the songs featured in Venus Underwater: Songs from Mermaidia put to music one day. It would be great to have an accompanying CD and activity book.
I look forward to more from Hengst and Samuels-Davis.
