More About the Author
"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.

The problems I have are the fact that he didn't put his toys away properly. He just shoved them in the cloest or under the bed. The isn't picking up a mess.
This book teaches you that you should always keep your room clean and organized so you'll always know where everthing is. You should listen to your mom for tips too.
It's very short (only about a sentence per 1-2 pages), so it works well on the nights when we're already running late for bedtime but we still want to sneak in a story. There's also no violence in Little Critter books and not a lot of exciting action, so they don't encourage kids to get wound up at bedtime either.
If you get any Little Critter book, make sure you look around at the details of the illustrations. There are often cute little details slipped in like the antics of the two bugs in this story who are trying to play baseball with Little Critter and then help him clean his room.
Little Critter doesn't do a very good job of the actual cleaning, but the difference between what he says he's doing and what the pictures show just gives you something to giggle at with a kid. It also gives you a chance to comment on what he's doing. When Little Critter shoves so much stuff under his bed that it's a lumpy mess, it gives you a chance to ask "Is he going to want to sleep in the bed when it's like that?" and draw attention to why his cleaning techniques aren't the best. That way the same message gets across with a cute and amusing book, rather than one that tries to hit you over the head with a moral to the story.
