Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Little Critter is quite excited about making Valentines at school. We follow him through his day in the classroom as he helps to decorate and celebrate the occasion. The class participates in all the usual activities: making cards, creating "mail boxes," enjoying special cupcakes (in the cafeteria—the day's menu is on a board in the background), and exchanging Valentines. The scenes are full of humor and crammed with lots of classroom details. Children will delight in the lift-the-flap aspect of the book, where the "rest-of-the-story" for each page is revealed. On the page where the mail boxes are opened, Little Critter checks to see if he "got" any cards in his box " . . . and guess what? (lift-the-flap) I DID." The last scene is of Little Critter giving his mother the special card he made during recess. The reader should be sure to search for Little Critter's friends, the tiny mouse and the big eyed spider, as they find their way through the pages of this addition to the "Litter Critter" series of stories. 2006, Harper Collins, Ages 3 to 6.

My 5 1/2 yr. old grandson loved the book. He took it to school for "sharing" on Valentine's Day. He is quite a good reader and could read most of it with some help from his mother. He has read other Little Critter Books and likes the characters.

The Little Critter books are great for elementary school age children. I am a teacher and so I am always looking to expand my classroom library.

Little Critter books are always a hit and since it's hard to find Valentine themed books that please little boys, this one is good.
