Book Review: Could An Octopus Climb a Skyscraper by Aleksei Bitskoff & Camilla de la Bédoyère

FTC Disclosure: Book received at no charge to facilitate review.

Ask anybody how many arms an octopus has and you're bound to get the right answer. What if an octopus needed shoes for her arms? How many pairs would she need? Or what if an octopus was in danger and had to detach an arm? Would a new one grow back? Could An Octopus Climb a Skyscraper? puts an octopus into everyday scenarios while helping the reader learn facts such as shape, size, and other features. Did you know an octopus has three hearts? Neither did I but reading about it makes it's easy to remember.

While the question and answer format stimulate thought, the fun is in the illustrations. Be prepared for silliness times eight as the arms of the octopus get tangled in all sorts of tasks. A perfect combination of learning and laughter for the curious young reader. A solid recommendation.
