Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just Me and My Puppy (Little Critter) by Mercer Mayer This book is a make believe book about a young critter boy who trades his baseball glove for a puppy. The puppy creates work, rather than help for the boy as they go throughout their day, but he seems to love him unconditionally. The tone of the book is humorous and light-hearted as it describes how the boy perceives the puppy’s ability to help. The little boy is an unidentified protagonist whom the readers can sympathize with as the puppy creates more work for the boy than actual help. This book would be appropriate for children Preschool - 5 years old. In the boy’s eyes, the puppy could do no wrong and the moral of the story teaches how we should love unconditionally. It is a part of the Golden Book Series.
