A new creature is added to the deep-sea tank, but what will they call this flapjack octopus? Includes an author’s note on Adorabilis and its name.
Cute, fun, and inventive! My 4- and 2-year-old daughters love trips to the aquarium, and they’ll love learning about how their favorite ocean animals got their names. I like the idea of pushing kids to think about things like reasons for names. When I first skimmed this book, I was immediately worried that there was too much text per page, but the conversational format of the writing helps move things along.
