From our shelves
The story: Little Critter is not so fond of this bedtime thing. He would much rather play cowboy or sea monster or bunny rabbit. Can his dad convince him to just go to bed?
Mama opines: I love Little Critter. I love how he is always getting in trouble. His particular brand of mischief is seen in little boys everywhere. It's not that he means to disobey - it's just that there are better things to do than go to bed! I like that this story features a dad putting his child to bed. Dads do this kind of stuff too, you know. I think Mayer strikes a nice balance in this series of parenting from both mom and dad. This is a great book to read if you have a little one who can procrastinate going to bed for oh....the next twelve hours or so.
Thoughts from David: I like it because he sleeps in his bed and before that, he does not want to sleep in a bed.
Favorite part: When the evil daddy puts him in the bathtub!
