By Amy Wertheim on November 24, 2002
Format: Paperback
This book absolutely enraptured me as a child back in the 70's, and now, with the anticipated birth of my own first child, this is one of the staple books with which I will start my baby's library. The gentle, sweet storyline combined with charmingly detailed drawings will entertain your little one time after time. There's always something new to discover with each reading, and they will help nurture that special close bond between you and your little one that only comes from sharing wonderful books together. This book is THE classic of Mercer Mayer books, and every child should have a copy of "Just For You", just for them.

This was one of the few books I remember as a child and now love to read to my own 4yr old daughter. This one and All By Myself, Just Go To Bed and Just a Toy are, in my opinion, the best Little Critter books! Enjoy!

This book was a part of my childhood and just recently I was given it again (hardback) for my 25th birthday. After reading it for the first time in many, many years, it was just as I had remembered. Not only are the little critters adorable, but the stories are touching. This book has special meaning to me because as a child, my mother and I would read it together, and I was alot like the little critter in this book. Always trying to do something nice for mom, but somehow messing it up. This book teaches children it is not neccesarily how you do something, but why you did it that means the most!

I remembered this book fondly from my own childhood, so recently purchased it for my son and his cousins. The book holds up well. While the critter fashions are dated, the basic theme (a kid making messes while trying to be helpful) is classic.

I continue to purchase this book for gifts. It was on of our children's favorites. While I read the picture book story, the kids would hunt the pages for Little Critter's friends, spider and grasshopper. We read it so often, the kids almost knew the book by heart. We still quote it today.

I remembered brighter colored pictures when I read this aloud to my children from the paperback. This was for a friend, and I have not heard back from her, yet. The story line is cute and accepting of accidents.

I was trying to come up with an idea for a gift for my favorite niece's baby shower when I noticed the shower was being held at the public library. She is a book lover like me so I gave her a book that each of my 3 children especially enjoyed when they were little. This one is my middle child's favorite. I also chose Dogzilla by Dav Pilkey and Where the Wild Things are by Maurice Sendak. My niece also has a 2 year old daughter and I thought she would also enjoy this gift.

This was my favorite book as a child - and I am excited to have a copy for my sons. It is even better as an adult - to see how hard a child works to make parents happy (even if they do it in a not-so-perfect fashion) - and the parents who love him unconditionally.
