More About the Author

MERCER MAYER began writing and illustrating children's books in 1966, and since that time, he has published over 300 titles. Open almost any of the award-winning author/illustrator's books, and out may pop dragons, cuddly monsters, wonderful creatures, and endearing critters.

"Most of my books are about things that happened to me when I was a little kid," says Mercer. "Now that I'm a big kid, I write about things that happen now, especially with my own children. They always help remind me of what it was like."

Born in Little Rock, Arkansas, Mercer Mayer spent his childhood hunting lizards and snakes in the swamps near his home. During his teenage years, he attended the Honolulu Academy of Arts. He later received additional training at the Art Students League in New York City. Upon completion of his studies, he set out with pen and ink to write and illustrate a collection of children's books, reflecting many of the adventures he experienced as a child.

In 2007, Mr. Mayer was commissioned by Laura Bush to create the artwork used for the National Book Festival held on September 29 on the National Mall. He was an honored guest to the event, giving a demonstration and autographing hundreds of books for fans who attended.

Me And My Little Brother is a great children's book for ages 5-7.
The book is about a young critter and his little brother doing all different things together. The two of them have snowball fights, ride bikes, and have many more fun adventures together.
There is not much of a lesson to learn, but to be nice to young kids and to help build a strong relation ship with your siblings.
On a scale from one to ten I give it a seven.

Format: Paperback
This book is excellent for teaching small children about the limitations and possibilties of a younger sibling. It is also one of the only books about two brothers available for very young children. When my son was disappointed to learn that he would not be receiving the younger sister he had yearned for, this book was great in getting him excited about a little brother. No masterwork of fiction, this, but it does get its point across loud and clear, and that is what matters with this sort of children's book anyhow. Some of the activities anticipated by Little Critter may not be those that every parent wants to encourage, but again, that probably isn't the point.

This book is about 2 brothers that do every thing together Pick apples, Play space wars, and everything. They scare away bullies to. They did everything together. I would recommend this story to two brothers. The moral of the story is love them while you got them.

As with all Little Critter books...this one had a wonderful story.

My boys are big fans of all the Little Critter books. We have a large collection and have watched Little Critter grow throughout the years. When I saw this book about Little Critter's little brother I was so pleased the family had another sibling to add to future stories. Unfortunately, we never heard from the Little Brother again. Was there a 'Just My Little Brother Who Died' book I missed?

...and I don't know why. (He doesn't seem to especially love his little brother, but he loves this book. Kidding. But they don't always get along very well.)

This book is a daydream of all the things the brothers will do together, just the two of them. Very sweet, adorable Mercer Mayer. I like this one much better than most of his other books. There's no sassiness in it.

I wish I could be specific about why this book is such a hit, but I can't figure it out.

We loved this book to prepare our 18 month old for the birth of his brother. We read it every night at bedtime. It was especially relevant for us because of the orchard, but I think that it would be great for any family--we sometimes read "sister" instead of brother. It also features a gamut of emotions, which are fun to discuss with the kids as they get older. A fun read!

I bought this book when I first started showing with baby number two, and my firstborn loved it. I knew I was having another little boy, so this book was perfect for our situation. He still loves to read it! The illustrations are vibrant, the text is easy to understand, and it is a quick read! We have a lot of the Little Critter books, and my son loves each and every one of them. Also check out "The New Baby" by Mercer Mayer. That baby is a little girl, and my son loved it just as much as this book. I recommend both to get the firstborn child accustomed to the idea of a sibling on the way! We also enjoyed Kevin Henkes "Julius, Baby of the World" to get our son ready for the new arrival. They are all wonderful books.
