I'm Big!

Overview

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
A young boy tells all about his accomplishments in this lively story written in verse. He begins with the usual feats, such as dressing himself, but this leads into imaginative adventures in the jungle where he was "King of the Cannibals" and "frightened all the animals." Some of these are questionable abilities, such as "I can throw this rock a mile away and bean that rattlesnake," and "Ya dare me to swallow my chewing gum and not get a bellyache?" After more boisterous and defiant stunts, while proclaiming how big he is, he gets a little scared when he thinks he sees a monster, but he quickly gets over that and shouts that he's "super?duper?galooper big!" Large and humorous illustrations work well with the text. Children may enjoy the spectacular things that he claims he can do and his defiant attitude, but parents may wonder if some of the events are appropriate.
School Library Journal
PreS-K-Based on the author's song "I'm Five," this story is disjointed, likely stemming from the attempt to adapt the lyrics to a broader audience. A young boy boasts of his bravery and new skills. At first, his claims are realistic (he can dress himself and wrestle his older cousin to the ground), but they quickly become exaggerated (he can "throw this rock a mile away/and bean that rattlesnake" and "paddle down a river/on an alligator's back"). Many of his boasts, such as being "King of the Cannibals" or walking away from the cops when they "started buggin' me with questions," will be more readily understood by older readers than by preschoolers who consider themselves "big." The text rhymes lightly, with a bouncy refrain, and the exuberant cartoon line drawings colored in pastel shades capture the tale's energy and quirky humor. The boy is clearly a rascal, as demonstrated by his rough play, his protruding belly, and his misshapen crew cut. This offering might appeal to some readers, but it is not an essential purchase.-Suzanne Myers Harold, Multnomah County Library System, Portland, OR Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
