9 of 10 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on October 2, 2003
Format: Paperback
This book is about a little critter who pretends to be different things and have different jobs. After that he has a snack and pretends he is a bunny. He said bunnies don't sleep in beds, so he just layed there. Then he decided he could make an exception and he said maybe they can just this once and then he went to bed. The lesson this book teaches is to listen to your parents, and try your best to behave. This is an overall good book and I recommend it for kids 4-8.

A perfect book for reading just before tucking your toddler into bed. A great book for fathers and sons to read together and an absolutely heartwarming book that all kids and parents can relate. We give this book as a gift. It really encourages reading before bedtime. Our other favorite book is "Going to Sleep on the Farm" by Wendy Cheyette Lewison.

My 3 year old loves this book. I do too, when she's being difficult about going to sleep, we read this and she follows Lil Critters example. LOL I use whatever works...and this works.

Format: Paperback
Little Critter and mouse return.

Little Critter is a cowboy who can lasso anything. Dad says "It's time for the cowboy to come inside and get ready for bed." Indoors; Little Critter, without his cowboy hat, boots, vest neckerchief and guns, sports a paper 'admiral's hat.' On the floor, his soldiers, tanks and mouse with a cannon look forward to their orders. "It's time for the general to take a bath."

An irritable Little Critter clothed in his 'jammies', toting his Bunny and none too anxious for bed is heading for the stairs on the cover of this Mercer Mayer work. Mouse is found sitting on the bottom tread. Just inside the cover on the title page we find another view, Little Critter is just as grumpy, however, the jammies are dragging on the floor behind Little Critter, stalwart mouse tramps at the side of buddy.

And so it goes, with his rocket in hand, Little Critter is a space cadet. Dad appears, and he carries the little space cadet to the bathroom where mouse is diving into a bubble filled tub. Before long; Little Critter is a sea monster doing violence to his bathtub ship. A slightly damp mouse is clinging to the ship when Dad appears holding LC's bath robe.

Snacktime finds Little Critter in the kitchen, peanut butter sandwich in one hand, chocolate chip cookie in the other. Mouse enjoys his cookie, surrounded by a horde of 'zoo animals' needing to be fed.

"Feeding time is over. Here are the zookeeper's pajamas."

Super Critter flies over the town, the train engineer is pursued by bandits. Once again Little Critter's patient dad reappears, little pajamas in hand, and a neckerchief masking his face.

"The bandit chief has caught you so put on your pajamas.

He writes so that kids and parents both get it. His irony is hillarious and the kids totally enjoy that their feelings are portrayed. LOVE it.

Format: Paperback
This book is fantastic! My 3 year old son never wants to go to bed because he doesn't want to miss anything. We've had multiple frusterations with the bedtime routine. "Just Go to Bed" is now a request each evening and Christopher is able to quote the book. We'll see if his little brother enjoys it as much.

This is my sons favorite book. He really loved it when he was 3, and now he's 6. So true to real life when it comes to bedtime! Goes through all the normal steps of bedtime. Entertaining and cute book.

Format: Paperback
One of Mercer Mayer's many wonderful Critter books, this book is not just entertaining for the children. It is a book that the children will love having read to them, and one that both child and parent alike can relate. Like any child his age, Critter does not want to go to bed.

As any parent can attest, this is not a situation for the faint-hearted. Any child can find numerous and fascinating ways to entertain themselves at bedtime to distract their parents from the task at hand, and buy some time. Critter is no exception to this rule. Children will delight, as the tale unfolds, and Critter finds new and entertaining ways and reasons to avoid bedtime and its necessities. Yet take heart parents! Even Super Critter needs to sleep.

The children may enjoy this story, but they will not be the only ones giggling. This adorable little person will delight and entertain you as well. Even though he can be a handful, Critter teaches children many things, the least of which is that being a kid can be fun, even when one has to do as their parents say.
