i’m a sucker for anything octopus. octopus alone is a sweet little book about shying away from ogling eyes, venturing further away from home, and then missing the familiar. it’s colorful, and sweet, with the added bonus of a story we can relate to. my son often remarks that people are staring. it’s something he seems acutely aware of, even when it’s not necessarily happening. i love how this book works through doing what you need to do when you feel that way. set in the colorful, busy ocean- there’s so much to look at, point through and talk about. plus, for those of less fish knowledgeable (uh, me.), fish names! we’ve even seen some of them at the aquarium, and my son loves pointing them out. win!
