ReadItDaddy's Second Book of the Week - Week Ending 3rd April 2020: "How To Put an Octopus to Bed" by Sherri Duskey Rinker and Viviane Schwarz (Chronicle Books)

Our second Book of the Week this week is squeezed into our friday slot, just because it's SO GOOD and such a huge amount of fun - and boy do we need a good dose of that kind of thing right now.

"How to Put an Octopus to Bed" by Sherri Duskey Rinker and Viviane Schwarz features an effervescent little Octopus pal called Floyd.

He's bubbly and fun but seems to be slightly mistaken as he thinks that HE'S the one putting his parents to bed, not the other way round.

Floyd dutifully rounds up a bath, some cuddly toys and of course a bedtime story or two before it's time to snuggle down for a blissful sleep.

There are so many humorous and cute touches to this book, and Floyd is such a great little character (even if C thought he should've been called Otto - as that's what her own little cuddly plushy octopus is called!)

Let's take a look inside this gorgeous book:

Bibbly bubbly squishy fun Floyd!
A perfect read-aloud book for bedtime with Viv's truly awesome illustrations (we really, REALLY want Floyd's bath!)

Splish splash, what an amazing bath!
Sum this book up in a sentence: Brilliant bathtime, booktime and bedtime fun for little ones, a story that bounces along and brilliant illustrations!

"How to put an Octopus to Bed" by Sherri Duskey Rinker and Viviane Schwarz is out now, published by Chronicle Kids (kindly supplied for review).
