Little Kid Reaction

Our daughter has asked for this book every night for nearly a week. She finally noticed the CD in the back and was very excited to learn more.

Parent Reaction

This is a cute story. We like that it blends in facts about the animals of the sea. Much more fun to read than a "science book." The "read to me" capability on the CD is wonderful, because our child can move around herself and doesn't need us to read for her.

Pros:

Kids will enjoy this colorful story about a shy octopus. Parents will love that it's packed with lots of useful information and learning.

Cons:

The puzzles would benefit from having instructions and tags (like "Solve it" read aloud, too. Pre-readers who use other parts of the CD will be stumped by these sections.
