Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just Me and My Dad (Little Critter) by Mercer Mayer I'm pretty sure I read this as a kid; it seemed familiar and sweetly nostalgic as I read it. The creature rushing out from the hollow tree made a big impression on me as a kid ;-> I really like the humor and how the text and illustrations work together in telling the story, such as when Little Critter finds a campsite but "someone was already living there" (and said creature angrily shoos them away from his tree). I loved some of the knowing looks the dad gives, but also that he was willing to endure a few bumps along the way in order for his son to learn. I also adored the little spider and grasshopper on every page. So cute! All in all, I think this is a nice read for Father's Day or father-child story time, especially if you enjoy camping.
