Little Critter is just like my toddler daughter in thought and action. He captures the whims and imaginations of a toddler so completely, that every book that I read to her from this series is perfect for her two year old mind because it rings true. In this book, we tackle the subject of independence. Little Critter can do everything by himself - brush his fur, get his food ready, get dressed. The sentences are a repetitive pattern of "I can (various actions) all by myself." How well he can do these things by himself, well, that's another matter, and the illustrations humorously point out that his attempts aren't perfect.

I've bought a number of Little Critter books for my nieces, because they really like them.And anyway, they're short, they're funny, they're topical, and they're cheap. In this one, Little Critter details all the things he can do "by himself". Of course, the illustrations give the lie to his words - sure he can pour his own juice, but he doesn't say that he spills, that sort of thing.Anyway, he very cutely does a lot of things "by himself" before reading that he can't tuck himself into bed - he needs a story.Aw.

Little Critter is learning to care for himself, and does a fine job, even if he's a bit inexperienced.

This is a great addition to our collection of Little Critter books. We have a 3-year old who wants to do things for herself. This is a good book to teach kids that they can do just that, Little Critter style.

love all of the mercer mayer books for kids. I read them to my children and now to my grandchildren. I guess that makes it a classic, especially this one.

I thought this book was a great way to help teach children they can do things for themselves.
