"A charming back-to-school book for the nervous octopus in all of us." --Kirkus reviews

Learn how to get your octopus to school in this hilarious and endearing back-to-school story!


Getting your octopus to school won't be easy. He would much rather stay home with you and play hide-and-seek or dress-up. But you know your octopus will love school if he gives it a chance. And you'll tell him that . . . as soon as you can find him . . . 

Reminiscent of If You Take a Mouse to School, get your little one ready for school with this silly and sweet back-to-school story. Perfect for any parent who has struggled to get their child ready for school in the morning! Includes an embellished list of octopus facts in the backmatter.

Praise for How to Get Your Octopus to School:


"A visual treat of a picture book. The octopus serves as a sweet buffer for viewers who are shy about going to school themselves, and older siblings may benefit from a reminder to be patient with little ones who don’t know the drill just yet." --BCCB
