Malaya's Lessons - Happy Mother's Day!

I have been collecting fairy tale books for years--a whole shelf full of them. In particular, I've loved stories of mermaids, mermen and their families. I even found a book called The Mermaid Reader, which details the lives, stories and legends of the merpeople.

This morning, in honor of Mother's Day I am re-posting one of my favorite drawings.

Here you see a tiny mermaid learning how to swim, instructed by her lovely green and blue-tressed mother. The fish is a helpful friend--bubbling encouragement to the little one as she learns to flip her fins.

Happy Mother's Day!

That's a great drawing, Beth!...I would call it more than a drawing;)
I could see it as an illustration in a children's or fairy tale book.
Sorry, I didn't get to you before Mothers Day:(
