Octopus

Introduction

This picture book story will help to develop your child’s language and literacy skills, especially their listening skills. Watching it together is a great way of encouraging your child to enjoy books and the whole process of storytelling. The activity is also great for stimulating their imagination as they listen to Cerrie tell the tale of a tickly octopus who annoyed all the other sea creatures.

How to extend the magic

Why not create a special storytelling den in the corner of the room and come up with your own ocean tale. It can be about any sea creature - and it could feature mermaids and pirates if you like! Why not have some fun making sound effects (e.g. 'SWISH SWASH', 'SPLASH!', 'PLOP!') as you make up your story?
