Making Believe there are Mermaids!

Writing a story about mermaids isn’t enough. You have to experience them and indeed I was able to with the awesome help of Mermaid Kariel, who makes children’s dreams come true! Here’s a look at what she did for Pouraka’s video, and if I can I’m going to interview the lady as soon as possible. Enjoy!


MermaidKarielMermaid Kariel has a book out for younger children called The Brave Mermaid. The inspiring story of a young mermaid who learns to share her talent, face her fears and believe in herself. Children are first awed by the fantasy mermaid illustrations, then inspired by the dream-come-true mermaid photographs. The story, poems, goal-building worksheets, and life tools included in this book encourage children to find their own inner passion and a sense of security. This book has something for everyone. The materials in it have been tested with thousands of children ages 3-13 over the course of four years in classrooms and at Mermaid Kariel’s shows. The contents are based on Mermaid Kariel’s own childhood experience struggling with an auditory processing disorder and bullying, and learning to overcome those challenges to achieve her goals. Paying it forward, Mermaid Kariel hopes this book will help give children an early start to believing they are talented enough to create and achieve their dreams while doing what they love! Mermaid Kariel is practicing what she is teaching. Since she was a girl, she dreamed being a mermaid and now you can find her entertaining as a real mermaid in Hawaii. For more information, go to
