    Mom takes Little Critter to the Big city. Little is just a whirlwind of mess in the big place. He loses the tickets on the train and they get kicked out of a nice restaurant. Mom is trying her best to make it a good experience, but it’s tough as disaster falls on them from everywhere. Still, by the end of the day, Mom had a good day being with her kid. This story really is like watching my nephew. I mean this is who my nephew is, but his mom is smarter than the mom in this story. She would never Mom takes Little Critter to the Big city.

She’s knows they would be gone. This is an interesting story. My brother, I remember now, was also a little like this too. It’s good to know that little boys like this can grow into really great dads. There is hope. The nephew thought this story was hilarious. He wants to get to go to the big city like his sister. He gave this 4 stars.

    This is another great young kids series. The books are for kids a bit younger than the Berenstain Bear series, but still fantastic to read to or have as your first books that your kids read to you. Each book in the Little Critter series generally has some moral to the story, even if you have to look a little bit to find it. For me, this particular book reminded me of the need for patience as a parent and how much my kiddos just want to spend time with their parents, not really caring what we do This is another great young kids series.

If you get a chance, check out this book and the series as a whole; I highly recommend them.

In this book, Little Critter spends the day with his mom. The two take the bus into the city to go shopping and look at the museums. While in the city Little Critter gets in to all kinds of trouble. At the museum he touches things that have signs saying “DO NOT TOUCH”. At the department store he gets lost from him mom. Somehow he ends up at a seal show when his mother finds him. The book ends with Little Critter and his mom heading home happily. The book is very humorous and will easily keep the attention of young children. Classroom use: I think young children would enjoy having this book read to him. The pictures are funny and hearing Little Critter's point of view makes the books very relatable to young children. This book could be used when talking about family.

    This is such a cute, loving book. It is all about a little critter who is spending the day with his mom in the city. He just wants to show his mom all these cool things but, the people in charge of the places they go are not thrilled. They go to a museum, an aquarium, an art museum, and a fancy restaurant but, things don't go so well at each one. All is good in the end though, he still had a lot of fun with his mom. I think this book would be especially good to young readers. They are able to re This is such a cute, loving book. It is all about a little critter who is spending the day with his mom in the city.

I think this book would be especially good to young readers. They are able to relate to the story, and they are able to use pictures to find out what is going on in the story, if they are not quite at that reading level. I loved this book, and the illustrations make it that much better!

    This book also has an old, probably outdated, disc that included games and a walk through of the book. I loved the interactive game with my book. The game would read the text and then you could click on the characters and they would do or say something. It was a lot of fun and helped to spark my interest in reading.

Always made me want to go out and do stuff, like in the book, with my mom right away.

    These were a childhood favorite. Little Critter's highly relatable innocence shines through in every book. This time, he and his mother embark on a special day together visiting a museums, an aquarium, and a lunch out. Favorite line, "Then we went to the art museum but it was full of weird pictures and I was tired." C'est vrai Little Critter! (What kind of animal is he anyway?) These were a childhood favorite.

    This is cute story about a kids day spent entirely with his mom. They do all sorts of things together that kids in my classroom might be able to relate to if they have done them as well. It also has good illustrations that really put the story into perspective.

    This book will always remind of my mother - and she still makes it a point to remind me of when she used to read it to me as a child. I still have the same copy tucked away in a box somewhere. I suppose it's become an heirloom! This book will always remind of my mother - and she still makes it a point to remind me of when she used to read it to me as a child.

    Another favorite from the Little Critter books, though I didn't like how Little Critter touched things in the museum he wasn't supposed to. I think I'm too hard on these books sometimes, but maybe it's just the adult in me.

    A mother and son spend the entire day together on the town. It's a very colorful book with funny pictures. A mother and son spend the entire day together on the town. It's a very colorful book with funny pictures.

    Little Critter goes on a fun-filled and very tiring day out with his mother. This story goes into detail of the activities the pair do, the areas they visit, and the encounters they have with issues every normal child experiences with their mother. Although none of the problematic tasks were intentional, this story does a great job at showing how important making mistakes are. Plus, the love that is shared between a mother and child conquer any misunderstandings faced! The genres are realistic f Little Critter goes on a fun-filled and very tiring day out with his mother.

Although none of the problematic tasks were intentional, this story does a great job at showing how important making mistakes are. Plus, the love that is shared between a mother and child conquer any misunderstandings faced! The genres are realistic fiction, folktales, and picture story book. The books is developmentally appropriate for children from ages three to seven years. And the quality of this story is relevant and relatable to children of all cultural backgrounds. I chose this story to be a form of equal representation that all families have bonds that are so strong and everlasting that no mistake can break that connection. Also, in relation to my text set’s theme, an immigrant family can depend on parents, aunts/unclue, or other forms or household leaders to guide the children to make better decisions.

    This book doesn't work well for a read-aloud. Or at any rate, it didn't work well for my three-year-old. The pictures sort of finish the story for the text, but my three-year-old is still pretty literal (as most kids his age are) and so he needed/wanted me to describe what was happening in each picture to finish the text of the story. I think he's probably just a bit too young for these Little Critter books. I'm thinking I'll reintroduce them around the time he starts independent reading.

ETA June 2016: Well, I didn't have to wait as long for my son to understand this as I thought I would. Less than 6 months after my original review, he asked to read this again. He understands it much better now, and is getting the humor in the pictures without me verbally guiding him through them. ETA February 2019: Read this to F for the first time this month. She's a baby so doesn't understand it yet, but both big kids (4 and 7) like it now.

    Critter is such a troublesome child. Although in the end Momma never once loses her temper with him; a very patient woman. Although the story line is skued the whole story is told like if a child was explaining their day to somebody who wasn’t there: all the exciting parts. The story is cute.The Little Critters series is always a family favorite next to The Bernstein Bears. The pages are filled with colors and pictures depicting the actual story line.

A great book for one-on-one story-time where a child could interact with what’s going on. A reader could also ask questions and possibly build a game out of the entire book. The copy I picked up from EPL was well-used. Pages had been torn but fortunately the story was still intact. So it proves that the stories are still often told and generally hold a moral to help aide in the development of childhood learning.

    Genre: Fiction Ages: K-3rd As a mother of sons, I'm not sure how I feel about this book. I get that little boys can be frustrating but it would be nice to see them enjoying some of their day together. The constant frustration of misbehavior is not how I would want a mother son day portrayed. However, I think children will enjoy the mischievousness and might even enjoy the mom's exasperation. The illustrations are great. They are very detailed and there is a lot to see on each page. There is a lot Genre: Fiction Ages: K-3rd As a mother of sons, I'm not sure how I feel about this book.

    Little Critter goes into the city with his mom and wreaks havoc at a museum, although not understanding it. Look for his little froggy on each page.

    These books are cute, though this one gets three stars for the illustration details that tell much more than the story. The mom's expressions are classic.

    Little Critter spends the day with mom. What adventures will they go on.... or will it just be a day of shopping? Definitely not my favorite LC book and I tend to remember my son and I not reading them often. Look at other LC books.

    Definitely one of Mayer's stronger books! It's a very cute story with Little Critter and his mother off to the big city; there's so much background detail, Little Critter is adorable and his antics are funny yet never mean-spirited.
