In fourth grade, my daughters continued to add some series and authors to their reading list that they would enjoy for many years to come. Here are 11 of the best books for girls in fourth grade, my daughters’ favorites….
It’s listed in their post, Mermaid Books and Crafts for Kids.
Erica’s son read the book and said, “It was good, even though it was a book for girls.” 🙂 I love that quote!
I’ll readily admit that Miri definitely has “girl appeal.” So I think that means the story has to be twice as good for a boy to enjoy it. I find that comment high praise, indeed.
What We Do All Day is a great blog written by a mom of two active and intelligent boys, about the books they read and fun activities to fill your summer days. In the post about mermaid books, there are lots of great crafts and other great books. So if you’re looking for some “cool” fun for this summer when you can’t actually get wet or just looking for a great read, head on over and check it out!
I know that book reviews for parents can be really useful when a parent is trying to pick out a good books for their kid to read. So I’m thrilled that Books, Babies, and Bows has reviewed Miri Attwater and All that Glitters.
Books, Babies, and Bows said that in All That Glitters “…the masterfully laid out mystery in the book had us quickly turning pages…”
And that “…E. S. Ivy uses her scientific background to weave real science seamlessly into the storyline.”…
For kid’s books, there’s nothing better than a book review by kids.
Here’s what Hannah, age 9, over at BookCubs had to say about Miri Attwater and the Ocean’s Secret.

When I came up with the idea to write a book about a girl who didn’t know she was a mermaid, my intention was to write a book that was pure fantasy….
Reads4Tweens says Miri Attwater and the Ocean’s Secret is … “a wonderful book for young readers who love mermaids and princesses. It’s in a modern setting, so it’s easy for them to put themselves in Miri’s shoes (fins?).”…
This review is special to me because it’s my first official kid’s review of Miri Attwater and the Ocean’s Secret!

V.K. said “I read Miri Attwater and the Ocean’s Secret with my 3rd grade daughter, and it was a big hit!…The story was … dotted with witty puns to go with the water theme. …[the character] Miri … had such a great spread of silliness about her, original humor, and fun, child-like way of looking at the events around her.”…
