As you look over the lake, you might spot a shimmer in the water. If you look closely you might just catch a glimpse of the mermaid! The mermaid named Kita loves to splash and play with any and all new friends she meets. She loves to show up at birthday parties and to read books to humans. But her most favorite thing to do of all is to talk with the humans and learn more about them. So, if you see a shimmer in the water, close your eyes and listen hard. You just might hear her song.
