"Della and Lila Meet the Monongahela Mermaid" is the first in a series of children's picture books written by Della Mitchell, 5 years old, and assisted by her mom, Brianne. The book is illustrated by Sian Bowman. "Della and Lila Meet the Monongahela Mermaid" explores the themes of nature, conservation, family, community service, and helping others. Throughout the text children are introduced to research patterns in the forms of charts, maps, and footnotes. Beginning concepts of biology, geography, and environmental science are also presented. A beloved local landscape provides the backdrop for this story about two sisters, Della and Lila, who befriend a mermaid in trouble. As the increasing mistreatment of the Monongahela River persists, Marina the Mermaid turns to two little girls, Della and Lila, to help her save her home. Della and Lila rally their family and friends and form a summer-long campaign to raise awareness about pollution and ecological damages in the Monongahela River. The girls and their friends work very hard to try and save Marina's home. But, will they be able to do it? Find out what happens when Della and Lila work together with their family, friends, and community to help save our river.
