This book is wonderful. It contains 7 stories: Just For You, When I Get Bigger, I Was So Mad, All By Myself, Just Go To Bed, Just A Mess, and I Just Forgot. My daughter absolutely loves this book. I highly recommend this book. It's absolutely perfect for beginners.

I read the Critter books as a girl and was looking for something different for my daughter and I to read together. The Pricesses as nice, but I wanted something that also showed some real life issues and would help her deal with a younger sister that is always underfoot. She loves these books. They seem real and she can read some of the basic words in the stories. I also liked the collection of stories. We have one book that we read a new story from each time. No picking up extra books. The hardcover is the best. It is weathering the use (and abuse) quite well. I recommend this to anyone with kids ages 2-7.

My little boy got this book for his second Christmas:  He was exactly one year, six weeks and one day old at the time.  He didn't really get the humor then.  He is now four years and four months old.  He  gets the humor now.  In fact, some of these pages send him into fits of giggles that last so long that I have to stop reading.  I'm OK with that. For the past month, my son has been at an "I'll do it" stage.  That stage is curiously close to Little Critter's "Just for You" stage and the "All By Myself" stage.  My son recognizes this, and the look on the mommy's face, and that's why these stories send him into paroxysms of laughter.  This collection has seven Little Critter stories, all of which capture a preschooler perfectly, and all of which I remember reading.  Little Critter is iconic.  When I saw him again as a children's librarian many years after having read his stories as a child, it was like catching up with an old friend.  I'm just not saying how old that friend is.  It doesn't matter -- now he is a new friend for my little boy.

Our son loved these books individually but they somehow are given a whole new meaning being all bound together. This series is great for reading but you are for sure sucked into reading, "just one more"! Another reason we are glad we bought it is this book is hard cover and the others get so damaged since they are paperback. You will not be disappointed; so buy it!
