This story is a Little Critter book. It is a trade book and in some ways, a predictable book. The story is about a big brother and a little sister who wants to do everything that her big brother does. This drives the big brother crazy and he gets tired of having to include her in everything. Until… the very end of the story, the little sister has a candy cane and he wants her to share and guess what, she does. The illustrations in this book (and all Little Critter books) are very cute and show emotion very well. You can see the body language that the older brother is showing when he is frustrated with his little sister. He will be holding his head or rolling his eyes so we can tell he is annoyed. I would use this book in my classroom to talk about family and who may have a little sibling like this. I would also talk about frustration and other emotions, body language and how we read it, and having patients. I may even connect it to my classroom by talking about “Do we always want other friends to join in on our games when we are at school?” “But it is fair to tell them that they can’t play with us?” and so on.

Somehow I never minded reading these over and over again to my kids. I guess because LC is just a little naughty/ impulsive, but also lovable, w/good intentions. Something like Ramona Quimby, Clementine, and my kids. ( )

This book is about Little Critter and how he has to include his younger sister in everything. He has to be the big brother that shares with his sister and wait for her, but gets very annoyed. At the end, his little sister learns to share with him making him happy that she is learning from him. ( )

Mercer Mayer's funny and popular Little Critter is learning to get along with his younger sister in this picture-book classic. When Little Critter goes off with his friends, his little sister wails, "Me, too!" When Little Critter eats a piece of cake, he has to share it with his hungry sister. It seems as if Little Critter's responsibilities as a big brother will never end. Then comes the day when his little sister learns to share. Little Critter sees a ray of hope. Maybe his little sister is growing up!

Now that we have two adorable little girls, I have been buying some new types of books: how siblings interact. Of course, I turned to one of my favorite series, Little Critter. The story in this book is about Little Critter and his sister, who is old enough to want to spend all her time with her big brother, and young enough to not be able to do everything she wants to do. Like a typical older sibling, Little Critter loves his sister, but is frequently annoyed by her clingy ways, which so often ruin his fun. A sweet touch to the book is that even though he gets irritated, he always includes her when she asks. At the end of the story, his sister comes up with a huge candy cane. When her big brother tentatively asks "Me too?", she happily shares her prize. A great book to read to siblings, and another valuable addition to the Little Critter series. ( )

Sharing with one's little sister can be an awful bother, but it has its rewards too.
