This book has been in our family for over 4 years, and it has been read consistently over that time. It's a funny story about a naughty Octopus "helping" his friend go to bed. But with each offer comes a twist! Octopus will help Buddy brush his teeth...but with paint brushes! Both our girls find it hilarious. And I like that there are some good lessons in this book: saying thank you, saying sorry, and of course forgiveness. It's fun to read aloud with another adult so one of you can be Octopus and the other one Buddy. Plus the illustrations are absolutely charming!
