Favorite picture book of the week: OH MY GOODNESS! A TOTALLY AWESOME SHARK!
This week's favorite picture book, I'm a Shark is a bright, fun new title from Bob Shea, author of such other goofy approaches to toddler issues as Dinosaur vs. Bedtime and Dinosaur vs. Potty. This "totally awesome shark" is not afraid of anything - not shots, scary movies, or even the dark. In fact, "Dark heard I was coming and ran!" Shark's only problem is creepy little spiders - but he's not scared of them, running away is "smart," he defends. Bob Shea captures the essence de toddler perfectly with such pitch perfect hilarious lines that no matter what you and your tyke aren't scared of, you'll be reading this one over and over.
HarperCollins also has a book trailer available for this book.
