Children's LiteratureLittle Critter and his mother are off to spend a day in the city. The hustle and bustle are a big change from what Little Critter is used to, but he bravely holds his mother's hand. When they visit the museum of natural history, he touches a few things he shouldn't. He really does get into a bit of trouble, so they head off to the aquarium, and that was not exactly a big success nor was their meal at the restaurant because Little Critter lets his pet frog join him at the table. It ends with a wild taxi ride back to the station and a trip home after an exhausting day. Little Critter and his pet frog are barely able to keep their eyes open as Mama reads them a story. Looking for the frog on each page might be more interesting than the text. It is a jam packed day and, in reality, would represent several excursions for most kids. 2004 (orig. 1990), Golden/Random House, Ages 4 to 6.
