"When I'm Bigger" talks about being in 1st grade (she's going into Kindergarten in the Fall) and going to the store by himself and buying boots by himself and all big boy decisions, something all little kids look forward to making, but nothing too far ahead, just far enough to look forward to!
"What a Mess", a favorite of ours, finds Little Critter cleaning his messy room in order to locate his baseball mitt. It's hilarious and gets across the message of keeping your room clean so you know where your favorite things are when you need them in a fun way.
"I Was So Mad", another favorite, talks about all the naughty things Little Critter wanted to do, that every child can relate to, that adults just kept stopping him from. He keeps getting madder and madder until he decides to run away. But then his friends come along and invite him to play and instantly difuse his temper and he decides he'll run away tomorrow if he's still so mad.
"Just For You" In this one Little Critter keeps trying to help his mom but everything he does he messes up. He tries to carry the groceries and the bag breaks. He tries to set the table but is distracted by t.v., etc., It's kind of an ode to Mommy, very sweet and again, relatable.
"Just Go to Bed" This Breaks down the bed time ritual in all of our homes. Little Critters playing and his Dad say's time to come in, but in a playful way, going along with Little Critter's imagination. Then Little Critter's playing in his room as a Space Cadet and Dad captures the Space Cadet for his bath and so on, a fun story leading up to bedtime.
"Sometimes I Forget" Like all kids, Little Critter forgets. This story talks about all the things he's good and remembering but how sometimes he just forgets. It's a good reminder to parents that sometimes our kids have a little memory and need reminding and try their best. I like the end, that there is one thing Little Critter never forgets, his bedtime story, my daughter always chimes in, "and me neither!"
"All By Myself" This story talks about all the things Little Critter can do all my himself; getting dressed, brushing his fur, feeding his baby sister and watching her. A lot of the same things our Little Critters can do all by themselves!
All in all a great collection and more than worth the $10! A great investment for your Little Critter, they'll be thanking you every night as they ask you over and over again to reread their favorite new storybook collection! I know mine does enough that I wrote this review by memory and can recall every story as I wrote it word for word, lol, and soon you will too.
