Special Story Time - The Mermaid in Rehoboth Bay

The Mermaid in Rehoboth Bay

We're holding a super special mermaid story time, featuring The Mermaid in Rehoboth Bay!

A storm has hit coastal Delaware and washed a young mermaid named Nibi across land and into Rehoboth Bay, separating her from her family, friends, and ocean home. Terra, a young girl who lives nearby, is afraid of the water, so she misses out on swimming with her friends and wading in the bay to collect shells. The two discover each other, become friends, and find a way to solve their problems together.

The Mermaid in Rehoboth Bay is a story that celebrates the beauty of the sea and tidal areas and depicts two strong female characters who are able to confront their fears and achieve their goals on their own. Great care has been taken to depict realistic, age-appropriate child-like characters that readers will identify with. The story addresses themes of friendship, girl empowerment, respect for differences, love of nature, and overcoming fears to achieve your goals.

In addition to the story, there will also be mermaid activities and a mermaid craft. Please arrive promptly at the start time to enjoy all that is being offered.
