Everyone who meets Little Critter falls in love with him and all his antics. Mercer Mayer created a winning series when he thought up Little Critter and his family. For years these childrens books have graced bookshelves all over and found their way into the homes of countless families. Mayer not only writes all his stories, but also does all the illustrations for kids to giggle over and enjoy for many years.
All by Myself once again gives readers their favorite character, Little Critter. Here he tries to show everyone that he can
do everything on his own. He knows how to brush his hair and tie his shoes. Well, almost tie his own shoes. He knows how to help his parents in the kitchen and in the garden. He can pour his own juice too, though sometimes he spills a little bit. Throughout the book, readers get to see Little Critter doing his best to do everything on his own, but sometimes things do not go quite right. Even so, it is all right because mom and dad are there to help, and everyone is glad that he trying so hard. All by Myself is a story that young kids can relate to as they start to grow older and learn to do things on their own. It shows that even if things don’t work out perfectly, putting forth the effort is worth it. Parents will also see their own children in this book as they learn to handle a youngster who is determined to do things by themselves. Of course, it’s a grand time with Little Critter because he runs into a few funny moments that will entertain readers who are infants, preschoolers, or even a little bit older. Mercer Mayer’s delightful illustrations show Little Critter as he tries to do so many things in his cute blue overalls and accompanied by his trusty pals, the little mouse and the spider (who occasionally try to do a few things themselves). The whole Critter family makes an appearance in All by Myself, making it a good time for everyone to read.
