Little Critter: Bedtime Stories (Boxed Set) by Mercer Mayer -- ESSENTIAL

Mayer, Mercer Little Critter: Bedtime Stories 144 pgs. HarperFestival, Jan. 2013. $11.99. PICTURE BOOK.

Reissues of six different Little Critter books, kept together in a convenient Velcro-sealed box with a handle. Contains paperback editions of The Best Teacher Ever; The Best Show & Share; Bye-Bye, Mom and Dad; The Lost Dinosaur Bone; Just a Little Too Little; and Just a Little Music. Also comes with a small poster and a sticker sheet.

Each of the six books is filled with the antics of Little Critter, a young creature whose impish ways get him in trouble but ultimately help him save the day. $2 per book is hard to beat, especially for adorable books that are sure to draw a lot of students. These editions are not particularly sturdy and will not hold up to hard wear, but they would would make a great addition to a classroom collection or leveled library. Library binding is also available for some of these titles when bought on an individual basis.
