Mermaid Chapter Books for Beginning Readers
Finding appropriate chapter books for new readers can be challenging. It’s tough to find quality books at the correct reading level and still meet a standard for “good literature.” My daughter loved mermaids, so when she was learning to read, she read many books involving mermaids! Most of these mermaid books are around the 2nd-grade level for a normal to slightly above-average reader.
Mermaid Chapter Books for GirlsPin For Later
The Mermaid S.O.S. series: This series is a good place to start to gauge reading level. This book had a good story, and is best for 1st-grade to slower 2nd-grade readers. The books are short so they’d work for a reluctant reader who loves mermaids.
Mermaid Girls Chapter Books: This is a newer mermaid series of books (as of 2023 when I updated the list.). The series is recommended for girls 6-10 years old. It currently has three books in the series.
The Emily Windsnap Series: The Tail of Emily Windsnap is the first in the Emily Windsnap series. This one is a little bit above a 2nd-grade level. It was challenging but the story is fantastic which helps encourage reluctant readers.
