What My Kid is Reading Wednesday:
”I’m the Best Artist in the Ocean" by Kevin Sherry
It’s not a big secret to anyone who knows me that I am a huge cephalopod fan—I am particularly in love with the giant squid. I actually bought Kevin Sherry’s “I’m the Best Artist in the Ocean” and “I’m the Biggest Thing in the Ocean” BEFORE I became a mom. This week, I dusted off the former and got E hooked on it again—it definitely appeals to the artist in him and it has a funny bit of a twist at the end. The book is designed for ages 3-5 and any ocean lover, in my opinion.
Kevin Sherry is an award-winning author and artist of MANY talents (but don’t take my word for it) and his books, though simple and sweet, are a great choice for little readers. He also has a Tumblr if you want to check out some of his side projects. As for his kids’ books, “Turtle Island" and "I’m the Scariest Thing in the Castle" are two more we may need to check out.
If you are still home schooling right now or just want to have some summer fun, here’s a link with some ideas based on this book. You could also do a silly food craft like this hot dog/noodle creation or a Nannerpuss!
