Bibs has a birthday coming up, Here you see his birthday request...Down, Down, Down: A Journey to the Bottom of the Sea by Steve Jenkins (one of my favorite authors/illustrators). My kids are abnormally obsessed with all things water life. BUT, even if your kids aren't like mine this book is one you should check out. It's filled with amazing information and the illustrations... I'm SO crazy about anything Jenkins does.
AND, speaking of giant squid. Did you know they have 10 tentacles? They do, 8 arms plus two longer tentacles. I didn't know that until I did some research when this particular birthday request was made. (I would never hear the end of it if I made a mistake on the number of tentacles.)
