Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Author/illustrator Mercer Mayer has been entertaining children for over 20 years with her delightful illustrations and heart-warming "Little Critter" stories. This title in the "First Readers" series from educational publisher McGraw-Hill shows that Little Critter can help beginning readers practice their skills, too. In this story, Miss Kitty's class plays games, runs races and cheers for the winners. But will they cheer if someone doesn't win? Little Critter is about to find out. The story uses repetition, familiar words and sound patterns for ease in readability. At the back of the book, there are several pages of follow-up activities to reinforce language arts skills, including vocabulary, beginning sounds match-up, story recall and even handwriting practice. This is one of several stories in the series starring Little Critter. Beginning readers will be sure to look for them all. 2002, McGraw-Hill Children's Publishing, $3.95. Ages 5 to 7.

Meet the Author


Mercer Mayer – writer and illustrator for Little Critter First Readers, as well as Little Critter Spectrum began writing and illustrating children’s books in 1966 and since that time, he has published over 300 titles. Open almost any of the award-winning author/illustrator’s books, and out may pop dragons, cuddly monsters, wonderful creatures, and endearing critters. “Most of my books are about things that happened to me when I was a little kid,” says Mercer. “Now that I’m a big kid, I write about things that happen now, especially with my own children. They always help remind me of what it was like.” Born in Little Rock, Arkansas, Mercer Mayer spent his childhood hunting lizards and snakes in the swamps near his home. During his teenage years, he attended the Honolulu Academy of Arts. He later received additional training at the Art Students League in New York City. Upon completion of his studies, he set out with pen and ink to write and illustrate a collection of children’s book, reflecting many of the adventures he experienced as a child.
