When I Get Biggerby Mercer Mayer
In this funny, all-too-human picture book, Mercer Mayer's famous Little Critter dreams of the day when he will be big enough to go to first grade, dial phone numbers by himself, camp out in the backyard, or walk to the corner store. By the end of his energetic daydreaming, Little Critter is so tired he has to go to bed. As he himself admits, "I'm not bigger yet." It's a fine and familiar catalogue of what young children yearn for.

I grew up on little critter and love the series!! It gets kids to think about when they get older and gets them to expand their imagination.
I have been reading to my son since he's been 4 months. I have now purchased All by myself, I forgot and I was so mad. My son loves these books he is now 17 months and we are continuing to read to him every night.
