Just Grandma and Me (Little Critter) (Pictureback(R))

Little Critter and his grandmother spend the day at the beach in this funny-and-true picture book about Mercer Mayer’s popular character. Little Critter is a good helper, even at the beach. When his grandmother’s hot dog falls in the sand, he washes it off in the ocean. He promises to blow up the inflatable seahorse but needs a little help in the end. The joys and mishaps of a special summer day with Grandma are all brightened by Little Critter’s sunny disposition.

  1. cute and fun This book is cute because (as always) Little Critter tells the story, and what Little Critter says is not quite what Little Critter does – and the kids catch on. For example, he drops the hot dogs in the sand and cleans them off by rinsing them in the ocean. He thinks this is fine – Grandma does not look convinced. And his description of his own swimming abilities does not match the frightened Critter wearing a floaty and clinging to his Grandma in the picture. 

  2. Great for beginning readers!! My first grade daughter really enjoyed reading this book. There were many words that were repeated which really helps out first time readers. In addition, there were enough new words to keep it challenging for her. The book was just long enough, not too short and not too long. I highly recommend this book for beginning readers. A plus for us, this book was on her AR list.

  3. A review! Just Grandma and me was a great book I liked reading when I was growing up. It wasn’t to hard and it wasn’t to easy. Most kids in first grade could most likely read it. They will love it if they like spending time with there grandma. It reminded me in some ways because I know I love spending time with my grandma. In the story Critter and his grandma spend time together at the beach. They do stuff together like me and my grandma do. It is a good book for beginners.
