Jackson, Ellen Octopuses One to Ten, illustrated by Robin Page. NON-FICTION/PICTURE BOOK. Beach Lane (Simon & Schuster), 2016. $18.
Jackson uses a rhyme to introduce each page and then includes more detailed information. After the initial pages, the next pages include information about each of the different octopuses, and then the next pages have octopus themed crafts for kids. The rhymes are not appealing to me. And having three different sections to the book makes it read as disorganized.
