And anyway, they're short, they're funny, they're topical, and they're cheap.
In this one, Little Critter details all the things he can do "by himself". Of course, the illustrations give the lie to his words - sure he can pour his own juice, but he doesn't say that he spills, that sort of thing.
Anyway, he very cutely does a lot of things "by himself" before reading that he can't tuck himself into bed - he needs a story.
There are numerous things he can do for himself. He can get out of bed with no help, he can dress himself and brush his fur, he can put on his socks and tie his shoes. Little Critter can even pour some juice for his little sister, and, he can lend a hand to her as she eats her breakfast.
All by Myself is packed with the same child pleasing, colored pencil illustrations that are always a key component of Mercer Mayer works. Little Critter has been a longtime choice for my K - 1 students.
Many Mercer Mayer Little Critter books also feature tiny 'littler critters' who move from page to page with Little Critter and take part in his adventures, antics and exploits. All by Myself features our old comrade, mouse. The students in my present first grade class get pleasure from watching both Little Critter as his story is told; along with noting the actions of the tiny one too.
Little Critter does many of the things my students do. He dresses himself, brushes his own hair and ties his own shoes. My students regularly come to school with hair wildly awry to proudly announce, I combed my own hair. Numerous first graders tie their shoes, NOT along with shoes on the wrong feet and even now and then one black and one brown. Besides, who said striped shirts cannot be worn with flowered pants?
Mouse trails along with Little Critter from incident to escapade.Read more ›
My daughter is a little perfectionist and won't try something unless she knows she'll be good at it, or gives up on trying the first couple of times she fails. So seeing Little Critter spilling juice while saying, "I can pour juice" (yeah he's pouring it just not in a cup haha!) tells her that it's okay to not get it right every time.
Unlike other reviews have said, I don't think this teaches a child anything negative or shows them the wrong way to do something. They can clearly see that Little Critter is messing up, but that's good for them because they can think, "He's just like me, he also makes mistakes." Meanwhile Little Critter is still proud of himself, because he tried. This is so encouraging and not to be underestimated.
