Squid and Octopus: Friends for Life offers many scenarios with plenty to look at on each spread. The soft palette of teal blue, green, orange, and yellow pastels provides a soothing atmosphere, making it a perfect read for bedtime or naptime. There's lots of gentle humor, too, with sly jokes coming out of the mouths of minor characters, such as fish swimming by or crabs crawling along the sandy bottom. With so much going on, it should take a long time to get tired of this one.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
