Rated 3 out of 5 by from When I Get Bigger (Little Critter) by Mercer Mayer This is an adorable story by Mercer Mayer about a kindergarten student. Throughout the story, he discusses all the things he is going to do when he gets bigger. The story has a pattern that is very repetitive, so young readers will be able to follow along. The illustrations are very bright, detailed, and fun.This would be a great book to use for read alouds in an early elementary school classroom. Students could even do an activity after the read aloud where they write or draw about what they want to do when they get bigger. Students would like this book because they can relate to many of the things that the narrator talks about. This book would be fun to read in class, and I would enjoy doing activities based on it.
