Although Mayer does a nice job capturing the beloved Little Critter in a story filled with egg hunts and chocolate, she falls a little short in this book as it does not have as good as a story line/plot as the other books in the Critter series. ( )

Mercer Mayer's popular Little Critter experiences all the joys of Easter, in spite of his little sister constantly tugging at his sleeve. The Critter family goes to church on Easter sunday. Afterward there is egg-dying and an egg hunt. Little Critter doesn't like dressing up for 'Easter but otherwise enjoys a very special family holiday.

Series of books featuring a popular character, like the Berenstain Bears or Little Critter, have a hard time with the holiday-themed stories. They are so focused on finding a tale to fit the theme that the writing is overblown and sloppy. I was pleasantly surprised that this book was a much better attempt at portraying the Easter holiday. The text is simple and clear, in keeping with the other books in the series. It innocently portrays an old-fashioned Easter celebration, with Easter baskets and dressing up and church and the egg hunt. Emphasis on the egg hunt. It is appropriate in presenting the child's interest in the holidays, and still features the adorable illustrations that are a trademark of the Little Critter series. However, the story is a bit dull, and lacks some of the charm of other books featuring the same characters. I've fallen in love with the little Critter series because it captures a child's perspective so well, but blends in great tongue-in-cheek humor that a parent appreciates. This particular title observes Easter from a child's point of view, but is missing that subtle humor I love. It's better than other holiday attempts in different series, but not as good as other titles in the Little Critter series. ( )

Students really enjoy Little Critter books because they can relate to his life (mom, dad, little sister, friends, school, etc.) The Easter book is about patience, obedience to parents, and sharing. The illustrations are cute, and there is a different book for each season and holiday.

This book is about a little critter that is excited about Easter morning. The little boy wakes up and wants to get to the candy first, but his sister is already there. The family then goes to church and people are dressed up with goofy hats that the little boy can see over. The children then dye Easter eggs and the parents hide them after the picnic is over. All and all it was a good Easter. I would like to read this book to the class, but be careful cause half of the book has do to with church.
