Chicken and Mermaid by Laurel Lorenzini is the story of a seemingly strange friendship between a chicken and a mermaid that began after the mermaid saved the chicken's life. One day, Chicken got too close to the sea, his foot got stuck in seaweed, and the tide came in. He thought it was the end for him, but Mermaid came to his rescue, freed him, and brought him back to shore. The two became inseparable, and every Friday for two years, they met to talk, share jokes, and their favorite meals. They loved each other's company, and their Friday meetings were always the highlight of each week, at least until an interfering seagull gave his opinion about their friendship and things started changing.
Chicken and Mermaid by Laurel Lorenzini is a beautifully illustrated children's storybook with a special message that will resonate with both children and adults. Lorenzini teaches children a lesson about friendship. I learned that when friendship adds positive values to your life, you become a better person. When it makes you happy, it doesn't matter what anyone else in the world thinks about your friendship as it's between you and your friend. We often get side-tracked by the opinions of others, and we allow them to influence what we say, do, and the friendships we forge. Mermaid and chicken's peculiar friendship will teach children about the beauty of relationships while enlightening them about the different kinds of animals we find in the ocean and on land.
