Review: Just Me and My Mom by Mercer Mayer

 Mercer Mayer’s popular Little Critter enjoys a special day in the city with his mother. Little Critter means well, but he gets himself in trouble all along the way. His mother is oh so patient when Critter loses the train tickets, picks up a dinosaur egg in the natural history museum, and misbehaves at lunch. In spite of his difficulties, Little Critter falls asleep happily on the train going home, exhausted from the big outing with his mother.

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.
