    This story was very repetitive and did not really have a meaning behind it I feel like anywhere in the story could have been the beginning At the end, there was no way for me to predict how it was going to end I would probably have this in my classroom library, but would not chose it as a read aloud book.

    I love Little Critter, and it appears my son does too The quick language, busy pages, and great concepts keep him entertained and give me back up on manners, language, chores, etc We like this one specifically because bedtime is hard some nights On those nights, we read this book so he knows that everyone does the same things he does, and that he must listen and go to sleep.

    This is just such an enjoyable story showing two points of views, a child s creativity and a parents work at trying to get an ordinary night time routine done But it s presented in such a fun way I think sometimes you just want to scream go to bed, but the dad does a good job using what the child is doing to redirect him to the activity he wants him to do.
