Overview

Mercer Mayer's popular Little Critter enjoys a special day in the city with his mother. Little Critter means well, but he gets himself in trouble all along the way.

In spite of his difficulties, Little Critter falls asleep happily on the train going home, exhausted from the big outing with his mother.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Little 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.
—Marilyn Courtot

Little Critter and his mom go the big city and have some adventures. What I found most most interesting was that Little Critter's friend, the Frog is in almost every page! This book is perfect to read on Mother's Day, and it's also a good bed-time story any day of the year.

shows the importance of spending time with each child alone. Cute story our 1 year old son enjoys it.

My son has a very good relationship with his mom for which I'm glad. This book tells of many of the things that a son and his mom do when they are together and it is also great, and it is similar to my boy and his mom. A child needs both parents and Mercer Mayer makes that clear, as he also makes clear that a child needs grandparents and friends as well.

I am a nurse that works with preschoolers and reads loads of books before naptime and bedtime. This and other books by this author are read on a daily basis. The stories capture the child's attention and makes them laugh and forget what is going on around them.
