I enjoyed reading this book for a variety of reasons. The illustrations in this book were large and captivating. They included details which helped to showcase the emotions of each character therefore enhancing the reader’s understanding of the events taking place in the story. I also liked that the overall plot of this book is easy for children to relate to. Children may experience problems when trying to get along with others, especially when the other child is treating them unfairly. For example in the story, Litter Critter let his friend plays with his toys but he had to pick up the mess all by himself. The overall message of this book is the value of friendship. Even though Little Critter and his friend had problems playing throughout their day, they still had a great time together. This helps to show that friendships have their ups and downs and are not always perfect. ( )

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 is a classic book by the beloved children’s author, Mercer Mayer. Arguably the best thing about this book is the plot, because it does an amazing job of depicting the trials and tribulations of childhood friendships with short, simple sentences. The book’s simplicity coupled with the detailed illustrations make for a great combination. I especially love the rich colors used in the book. The different shades of brown used for the bears’ skin alongside the bold colors of their clothes and surroundings bring out a homey yet fun feel that closely matches the vibe of the book. The main message of this book is an important one- it is important to treat your friends with kindness. ( )

The very popular Little Critter has a friend over to play and tries his best to be a good host. It's a long afternoon. After his friend damages Little Critter's bike by accident, leaves him in the tree house without a ladder, and doesn't help clean up his room, Little Critter decides that playing alone isn't always bad. Mercer Mayer's dry and gentle humor provides another funny-but-true picture-book treat.

In this little critter book, he has a friend over and is trying his best to be a good host. Even though through the pictures you can tell his friend is not playing very nice, like when he takes the ladder from the treehouse, and even breaks his toys, like his romote control car and bike, little critter is always trying to be nice. Ultimately he decides that it is fun to have a friend over but sometimes it is good to be alone. This book would be great in the classroom to demonstrate the difference between being a good friend or a bad friend in pk-1. ( )

Though playing with a friend can be a great deal of fun, it's good to be alone sometimes too.
