" ... Octopus!: Things You Don’t Know by J.T. Hobbs(Author) and Santhya S. Radhakrishnan (illustrator) This is a children’s book that talks about the octopus! Amazing! Just love it!

‘Colorful, fun and educational are just some words to describe Octopus!: Things You Don’t Know by JT Hobbs. I read this book to preschool-aged children and they have been able to follow along soon enough, thanks to the rhymes. Santhya S. Radhakrishnan also did a great job with the eye-catching illustrations. The young ones I read this to are easily able to identify not just octopus but the other illustrated creatures as well. I believe this book is a great resource for little children and that it is also an awesome start for emerging literacy skills. I will definitely be on the lookout for other books by this author and its illustrator.’

Octopus!: Things You Don't Know Reviews

‘He’s one of the coolest!’

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
New children’s book author J.T. Hobbs joins his love for reading stories to his children with writing new ones, and in this, his first publication, he is augmented by the illustrations of Santhya S Radhakrishnan. The result – a fine pairing and a solid new addition to the library of entertaining and educational books for children. The opening of the story is an invitation – ‘Jump in the water and come swim with me To look at all the creatures of the sea. The Octopus deserves more attention, of all the fish he barely gets mentioned.’ And from there we learn that the Octopus has eight arms (each with a brain), and three hearts, blue blood, and sits still in the sea with little to no motion. He has no bones, can change shapes, eats clams and snails – all things that make him a very important sea creature! Fun to read in lilting rhyme and excellent images, this is a book children will love – and from which they will learn. This is a fine little debut book. Recommended. Grady Harp, September 19

“Octopus: things you don’t know” is a fun and educational book about the octopus way of life… Written in rhyme and full of illustrations this is an amazing book for kids to learn curious and unique facts about the octopus: how it feeds, how its ink is used and for what purposes, it has blue blood, three hearts, no bones, eight arms and a brain for each of them! The author J. T. Hobbs wrote this small and adorable book, he is a father of three children and who better than a father knows how smiling while reading or while a parent reads them a book is an important part of children's life, it can help them to feel carefree, exactly how they should be. I loved this book, it is so cute and entertaining I will read it again for sure! I highly recommend this book for your children and to enjoy some quality family time together!

“Octopus: Things You Don’t Know” is a children’s book that teaches the young reader interesting facts about a well-loved sea creature — the octopus! The illustrations in the book are adorable and colorful, making it an even more interesting read for young children. The sentences are also short and simple to encourage young readers to read on their own. A wonderfully interesting and delightful book about octopuses that kids will truly love.

OMG so fun!

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Octopus! Things You Don't Know is an all-in-one book. It's fun, it's informative, it's cute(!) and so engaging. The book is full of beautiful illustrations and some seriously amazing facts about the octopus. I must say, it really is one cool creature! The book is a short read, and I do wish it was a bit longer. The facts and information was so engaging that I wish I could read more about aquatic life in general or more facts about the octopus itself. All said and done, this is the kind of book that both kids and adults will love in equal measure. Kudos to the illustrations and the writing style. It all comes together very nicely. Absolutely love this book.

Your kid will definitely like it!

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Ohhh it was definitely a sweet read! I bought this book for my younger cousin and I saw sincerely happiness in her eyes. First of all, the book is really colorful and attracts the attention of young readers. Second of all, on each page there are several sentences with help of them you can get acquainted with interesting and unusual facts about the octopus. Of course, probably adults know them, but for children it will be very exciting, because after the fact, you can observe a detailed illustration. Good qualified pictures will impress both of you. The book is small, I would probably like a little more, maybe more about the underwater world, but this is only my opinion. In general, I can advise Octopus!: Things You Don't Know because it is funny and will give you and your child positive emotions. I'm sure you will reread it! Highly recommended

Just love it!!

Colorful and full of facts about octopus!

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
This is a children’s book that teaches them about an octopus. The pictures are great, since they are fun, lively, and colorful. There are also facts presented in the book, which are great but also silly, since there are made up words that go along with the rhymes in some instances. If you are reading this to your child, there is plenty for them to see when they are looking at the pictures, and it may even lead to bigger discussions on marine life and things like that. This is great for capturing their attention as well. It is simple enough for young readers to pick up once they start reading, so they can learn while they are strengthening their reading skills. I would recommend this one for families with curious little ones, who are constantly asking questions and want to learn more about animals. It is something simple and enjoyable.

Delightful and beautiful book

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Octopus!: Things You Don’t Know by J.T. Hobbs(Author) and Santhya S. Radhakrishnan (illustrator) is truly amazing. A delightfully illustrated rhyming book, Octopus enlightens us about this odd creature of the sea. Octopuses have eight arms, we knew that, but how many of us knew each arm has a brain? And the head has one as well! How about a heart? How many hearts do you think an octopus has? Three! And his blood...is blue! Octopi stay motionless most of the time. They vary in color, amazingly enough they can be red, blue, brown, green, orange or black...or somewhere in between! Now with all those extra hearts, brains and appendages, what doesn’t the octopus have? Bones! And having no bones allows him to fit and hide in places to keep him safe. A fun book for kids and educational even for adults!
