Little Critter shares some Easter traditions
I also had mixed feelings about this book. I liked the book for some reasons and I didn't like the book for other reasons. I liked the book because since it was a book about easter the author wrote about the traditional aspects and also some of the religion that comes with easter. I liked when the author spoke about of critter felt when he woke up and how he got competitive with his sister during the easter egg hunt because children could relate to critter, I could even relate to critter because I do most of the same things around easter time. I liked the characters because they were believable to readers and they were also well developed. One thing I didn't like about the book would be that there wasn't enough words on one page and sometimes I would get distracted by the illustrations because they didn't go along with the words of they were too detailed that I forgot to read what was on the page. The main idea of this book would be that the reader gets to see all the joys of easter throughout the day of critter. And that he learns to appreciate not only the fun things about easter but the religious aspects behind easter as well.
This book was a fun modern fantasy to read. I would read this book in my classroom to talk about Easter. It wasn't my favorite book, but I enjoyed it.
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.
