Ozo, the octopus, has eight arms. His arms moved in all directions. It moved up, down, left, and right. This became a problem for Ozo because he needed to calm his arms. He met some of his friends and asked for help, but only Ozo’s teacher, who was full of charm, decided to help Ozo. How did Ozo’s teacher help calm his arms? You can find out when you grab a copy of this book.

Ozo The Octopus Needs Arm Squeezes by Elizabeth Eskow Bortz was very lovely to read. The author was conversational in her choice of words. The way she writes will attract the attention of any child. She marked out some of the important keywords in the book by making them bold. I loved how she did her best to keep this book short and direct. The rhyming in this book is another factor that can help keep children glued to it. I must applaud the effort that went into creating the unique and colorful illustrations in this book. They were bright, bold, and colorful, and this is another factor that will make children love this book. I love that morals like care, kindness, and attentiveness are shown in this book. They will help teach the children good morals.

There is nothing to dislike about this book. My favorite character in this book is Ozo’s teacher. She was lovely and did not hesitate to help Ozo when he needed help. I think all teachers should learn to be attentive to their students like Ozo’s teacher. I also love the tiny details of the quotes that were included on the shirts of some of the octopuses. Helpful tips and strategies concerning sensory strategies are also included in this book.

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars for the reasons I mentioned above. This author put a lot of effort into this book, making sure that it was exceptionally edited and that not a single error could be found in it.

I recommend this book to children between the ages of 2 and 6. I advise that a parent or guardian read this book to the child or ward just in case some questions arise.
