We made this Oval Octopus using:
Chipboard cut from a cereal box for letter base
Blue and Green crepe paper
Glue: White Elmer’s
An Octopus book we like (or something like that):
While I was racking my brain to come up with a suitable recommendation for an octopus related book I remembered an ocean book we love instead. This pick is a true picture book as I don’t remember it having any words. It’s called Wave by Suzy Lee and the simple black and blue illustrations tell the story of an inquisitive little girl’s experience and relationship with the ocean as she runs to and from the wave while it splashes towards her and then retreats. Eventually a large wave catches up to her and although she is left soaking wet, she discovers a treasure the wave left behind.
