Project Idea: Mermaids

There are mermaid stories from around the world, and you will find these creatures called by different names in different countries.

Research Tips: Wikipedia is a great place to start learning about mermaids and other water-women under their various names: mermaids, sirens, undines, naiads, lorelei, selkies, rusalkas, nixies, melusines, and more.

You can also find mermaids in the stories at the Freebookapalooza; this search will give you all the books that have a story with "mermaid" in the title: Mermaids (use Control-F to find the specific story titles).

Dan Ashliman's site is also very useful: Mermaid Wife, Melusina, Water Spirit Legends, and More Water Spirit Legends.
