Stories have a way of grasping children’s attention - widening their mental horizons, fuelling their curiosity and teaching them valuable life lessons. Storytelling and reading to your kids is also a great bonding exercise that will strengthen your relationship with your child and help you pass down values that are important to you. But what sort of books should you introduce to your child? Begin with the classics. These are time-tested stories that have been loved by children of all age groups across generations. They have important messages to give and feature fantastic characters that will live forever in your child’s mind. One such story is that of The Little Mermaid, written by Hans Christian Andersen. The Little Mermaid story is about an underwater princess, a mermaid named Ariel, who falls in love with a prince from the human world. She believes her love is enough to turn her into a human, and she’s ready to give up her magical powers in exchange for a pair of human legs.

The Disney Mermaid

The story of The Little Mermaid has been adapted into several movies over the years and Disney has been at the forefront of it. There is a lot of excitement about The Little Mermaid 2023 film. Stories of princesses who go on adventures and show the courage to follow their hearts are important retellings that reinforce in our children that defying the norm and believing in yourself are qualities to be treasured.

Here are 5 reasons you must introduce Ariel Little Mermaid’s legacy to your girl.

1. It teaches children to embrace adventure and trust themselves.

"A dream is a wish your heart makes.” says Ariel, The Little Mermaid. Ariel’s famous lines speak of acknowledging the desires of the heart and working to make all your wishes come true. This story will encourage your little girl to trust her gut instinct, be able to imagine a unique future for herself and have the courage to go on solo adventures to live the life of her dreams, just like Ariel does, in wanting to be a human, even though she belongs to the underwater kingdom of the sea as a mermaid.

2. It gives lessons in Independence and Self-Discovery

This story will teach young girls about being independent and taking charge of their lives. It will tell them not to wait for someone else to come help them. The Little Mermaid also teaches about self-discovery and acknowledges individual desires, preferences and choices and teaches one to carve new paths to shape their own destiny.

3. Strong female role models

“I’m a girl with a dream” - this famous line by Princess  Ariel inspires young girls even today. Little girls need to hear stories that have strong female protagonists to be able to relate with them and think that if this girl can, so can she. Ariel’s belief in her dreams, in her unwavering pursuit of them despite several life-altering challenges, teaches young girls to believe in their ability to rewrite the course of history.

4. Believe in magic

Magic happens when dreams come true when the extraordinary is achieved and the impossible done. Ariel is proof to the fact that magic did not lie in her identity as a mermaid but in her ability to let go of her fantastic reality for her love of an ordinary human. Magic occurred when she agreed to give up her magical abilities to become an ordinary human because that is what her heart desired and truly made her happy. Magic exists in the belief that you can get whatever you desire if you work for it.

5. Acceptance, Love, and Friendship

"Children have got to be free to lead their own lives.", says King Triton when he finally recognises the strength of Ariel’s love for the Prince Eric. This is a tale of accepting yourself and others around you for their authentic selves. It is about the true meaning of love and friendship that is selfless, just like Ariel’s love for the Prince, wherein she agrees to give up her beautiful voice and her magical abilities for a pair of legs to turn into a human. It also teaches how friends help one another, through thick and thin, without questions like Ariel’s friend Sebastian did.
