Picture Book Review: I’m the Biggest Thing in the Ocean, by Kevin Sherry


When a giant squid takes
inventory of all of the creatures in the ocean, he realizes that he’s
way bigger than most of them! Of course, there are bigger things lurking
around . . . but maybe this giant squid with a giant touch of hubris
doesn’t really care? First-time author-illustrator Kevin Sherry is sure
to garner fans of all sizes for his perfect-for-preschool read-aloud
with simple text, bold and delightful collage art, and a lovable squid
whose spirit just cannot be crushed.


Love this book!  

The giant squid starts pointing out all the things that are smaller than him.  But of course, there are some things that are bigger than a giant squid.  

I have to admit that I was shocked when the squid got eaten.  I was not expecting that.  My kids seemed equally as shocked, but the next picture is of the squid inside of his predator, so that rectified any initial reaction my children and I may have had.  

This oversize picture book boasts bright, cheerful illustrations with tons of personality.  It is a perfect read aloud for preschoolers and toddlers.  They are bound to love it!
