    One thought on “My Octopus Arms”

    1. I picked up this book because I was drawn to the adorable octopus on the cover and the fun title. It wasn't until I got home that I realized that this was written by Keith Baker. I seem to be drawn to everything he does. (My favorite is his book about hummingbirds). My favorite thing about this book is definitely the illustrations--they are adorable! In the story a little crab asks Octopus what his arms can do. Octopus then lists a variety of tasks he can. In the end Octopus states that his favo [...]

    2. I love the colorful art in this book, with the cute multi-tasking Octopus.There’s not much of a story. It reads more like a rhyming poem that lists all the things you can do with your arms. It has a sweet ending.It is a very short, quick read with humorous pictures, so it’s a good choice for toddlers when you don’t have much reading time.

    3. My Octopus Arms written by Keith Baker is a short children's story about what an octopus can do with his arms. A crab asks the octopus what his arms can do and the book lists things the octopus can do in a rhyme scheme. Some of the things that octopus can do are: write a letter, wave goodbye, tie a bow, clean up a mess, take a photo, swing a bat, wash dishes, bounce a ball, and pull someone in close for a hug. The book ends saying that not only the octopus can do all these things with his arms, [...]

    4. This book was okay. Nothing special. I was hoping it would be better because my daughter really likes Octopuses right now. But the story was pretty boring. It just showed all the different things that an Octopus can do with 8 arms. But they weren't really even that funny or true.Overall this book was pretty lackluster. My daughter didn't even seem that interested in the pictures. A bit of a letdown, especially after another really big let down in the book we read the previous night as well. Bumm [...]

    5. In rhyming text an Octopus shows a crab all the things it can do with its eight arms. Of course, most of the actions are absurd since an octopus can't swing a bat or stir a pot, but many young readers may like being reminded that all arms can give a hug to someone who needs one. The digital illustrations are filled with soft colors and lots of action under the sea. While the book has a good message and is filled with the busy actions of the octopus, I was a little annoyed that his actions were a [...]

    6. Crab asks Octopus, "What can all eight of your arms do?" Octopus then demonstrates the many things his arms can do, which happen to be written in rhyme. But the best thing arms can do is hug. Keith Baker has created blue backgrounds with a bubble space where happy, colorful Octopus demonstrates his abilities.Toddlers

    7. A sweet story about how an octopus uses its 8 arms to do a great many things; the very best thing of all being to hug someone. Digital illustrations. I like this title as a fresh book for preschool/daycare classrooms on parts of the body and all about me units of study. I also liked the wealth of details in the illustrations that make for a great dialogic reading experience. PreK-2.

    8. We loved this book. When I say we I'm talking about me and my 8 month old daughter. The colorful illustrations and the story really grabbed her attention. We picked it up at the library and were drawn to the cover and the title. What a neat concept for a book. Simple and beautiful! A truly great read!

    9. Ashton was drawn to the colors initially abd the fact that he likes animals. The book was not inundated with a lot of words which was good to hold his attention span. He loves the rhyming part. This book is fun.

    10. An octopus shows a crab all the things he can do with his arms.The illustrations are colorful and text is minimal. Practice reading beforehand because the text appears in 3 or 4 spaces over each 2 page spread.

    11. Mama read this to me the other night before bed. We thought it was really cute and fun. I love octopi so I loved seeing what they use their arms for.

    12. This book could be used to introduce a section on ocean animals. The other thought that came to mind would be using this book to inspire students to write about what they would do if they had 8 arms!

    13. Rhyming text, probably would be good for kindergarten. Could fit with "helping" theme such as Kindergarten, Unit 9, Week 1: How can you help out at home?

    14. What a sweet story about what hands/arms can do presented in a silly and fun way with an octopus. Pair this one with The Handiest Things in the World by Andrew Clements.
