Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just Go to Bed (Little Critter) Mercer Mayer takes us on an imaginative journey as Little Critter prepares for a good night's rest. Bed time is one of the hardest times for kids, and this book offers an opportunity for young readers to relate. From make believe of being a cowboy lassoing up cows to becoming a sea monster attacking a ship (during bath time), this little guy uses imaginative optimism all throughout. Dad is ever so patient and guides Little Critter through each step of "preparing for bed." By the last page of the book, Little Critter's imagination made him become a bunny, a tired little bunny, who falls asleep. This is a great book for early readers!

Employee Review

Mayer is one of my favourite children's authors. He uses simple sentences, and the illustrations are funny both for adults and kids. This books typifies the patience needed to get one's little critters into bed. Dad tries to get his son ready for bed while his son tries to continue playing. He first pretends to be a cowboy, then a general, a space cadet, sea monster and several other characters. Dad starts off with good humour, however by the end his patience has diminished somewhat.
