Little Critter Book Review

When I was in grade school I loved reading Little Critter books by Mercer Mayer at the library.  We didn't have any at home, and I just thought the illustrations and stories were so fun!

I was excited to learn that Thomas Nelson has come out with some new Little Critter books that have a biblically based message!  They sent me "It's True" and "You Go First".

"It's True" is about Little Critter learning to tell the whole truth, because telling half-truths is the same as lying.  In the end he corrects his lie and all the other kids forgive him for lying to them.  

"You Go First" is a story about Little Criter always wanting to be the first to do everything, and he steps all over his friends to do it.  His teacher tells him that we are supposed to treat others as we want to be treated, but Little Critter ignores her and learns his lesson when he rushes ahead of his friends and gets lost in the woods.  He didn't exactly have a change of heart for the right reason in this book, but in the end he learned how to be a better friend, so I still liked it.

Both of the stories were cute, and as always the illustrations were colorful and fun!  Wyatt loved looking at the pictures, and I like that these are good lesson books as well, and they will be good for training as he grows!

Note:  I received this books for free from Thomas Nelson as part of their Tommy mommy program in exchange for this review.  This is my honest opinion.
