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.
