Just a Little Critter Collection

MERCER MAYER began writing and illustrating children’s books in 1966, and since that time, he has published over 300 titles. 

Open almost any of the award winning author illustrator’s books, and out may pop dragons, cuddly monsters, wonderful creatures, and endearing critters.

Dustin had a collection of these incredible Little Golden Books that I read to him for many years. 

Sharing this story with today’s Saturday Critters challenge. Something a little different. I remember many little critters in these books. 

Brought back wonderful memories for me. I took a stroll down memory lane while writing this.

  1. what a joyous and happy memory – thank you for sharing that!

    i had Mercer Mayer, Shel Silverstein and so many others (Sendak, Suess) in my classroom (I started out teaching 2nd grade)

    i gave them to my kids when i left teaching. So magical!

  2. I was a regular book worm as a child but this series of books I do not know. I read many picture books and others including some from the series the Golden Books. Will take a look at what these books had to offer out of curiosity,
