3. The informational picture book, “Octopuses,” takes a look at octopuses, including their habitats, physical characteristics, such as their suckered arms, behaviors, relationships with humans, and mysterious status in the world today. The main idea of this book is about taking a look at how octopuses helps create the world. I adore this info book for many reasons. First, the pictures are absolutely stunning. The authentic pictures captures the reader’s attention, to read more in depth about the pictures. I like how each page includes a side bar and a smaller picture, offering extra info about octopuses. For example on page 11, an info box reads, “There are more than 120 species of cuttlefish, an octopus relative that has 8 arms as well as 2 tentacles.” The picture that goes along with it is a real picture of a cuttlefish. Second, I like how the picture book includes maps, fun facts, and a few tales. All figures, graphs, and photographs are clearly labeled and explained. Third, the depth and amount of information is a simple yet clear read. It is appropriate for any type of audience. Overall, the book broadens readers understanding of octopuses under the sea. ( )
