Three books in one package highlight three imaginative villages in the ocean. This mother/daughter duo created delightful board books perfect for little hands. From the daughter’s poetic words to the mom’s cute undersea characters, kids will love looking through these board books.

Each of the books would be great for breakfast-time reading or as a bedtime story as kids will see the characters start and end their days in the books. From the mermaid reading stories to the sea creatures at bedtime to the Mercat falling asleep inside a shell, kids will be ready to quiet down for the night as well.

This set is small enough to tuck into a travel bag and keep kids interested if you need to wait for an appointment or head out on a drive. All three books fit snugly in the companion foldable box with a magnetic closure. Each book has a cutout of the main character in the story from a mermaid to a mercat (a cat mermaid), and a diver in a wetsuit hanging out with some of the ocean’s creatures.

Take this along on your next trip and surprise your toddler with 3 books in one!
