I am a self-proclaimed book fiend. Children's literature holds a special place in my heart - I think it is because my mother is an avid book lover herself and taught me from very early on to love classic, well-written children's literature.
Beautiful, enriching illustrations are just a part of the draw of a wonderful children's story, and so most of the books we review here will have gorgeous drawings.
You will not find any lackluster books on this blog. No vulgar Dora, Spongebob or Disney.
We believe in books that beautify the experience of growing up and learning.

Little Critter Books by Mercer Mayer

I don't know how many Little Critter books there are - but there are plenty. I always seem to find one I've never seen when I visit the children's section in the book store. It's a good thing because my kids adore Little Critter...so do I.

These stories just center around a little...well...critter and his family. He's always getting into some sort of unintended (or intended) mischief and learning new lessons by the minute.

I really like the in tact family that the stories portray. Mom, Dad, Little Critter and his little sister and little brother. These are sweet, innocent, and usually funny stories that Evie and Beck really seem to identify with.

I remember these being my little brother's favorite books when he was a little guy too...how can that have been over 18 years ago?
