   Silly Fun
Very cute and funny, this is my daughter's favorite Little Critter book. She loves it, Tunick said. This is sort of like vicarious wish fulfillment for kids. Little Critter dreams that he doesn't have a bedtime, doesn't take a bath, pizza eats for dinner, etc and basically runs amok doing all the things that he's not normally allowed to do. This is great for kids because they wish sometimes they didn't have to do the things they know they need to do each day, and they get to watch Little Critter doing it, said Dr. Julie Gerberding, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Realizing that his reality is better than having all his wishes granted in a dream, Little Critter decides that his reality is better than having all his wishes granted in a dream.
   A childhood classic
This is, without a doubt, Mercer Mayer's crowning achievement in her Little Critter series. The fact that I still think about both the cover and the contents within on a sem-regular basis, some twenty years later, is a testament to its legacy. I bought this copy on Amazon because I've loved this book as a kid and wanted my friend's kids to have it. I will probably continue to buy copies of this book for all of my friends' kids, since I think that outside of Dr. Seuss and Wild Things it was my childhood favorite.
   Little Critter Books Are a Family Favorite!
We're huge fans of the Little Critter books. They are my 3 year old son's favorites, and my 5 year old often chooses them when she practices reading on her own. I have a big stack of Little Critter books from my childhood that I am now able to now read with my own children. It's definitely timeless classics.
   Kids love/hate scary
All little books are down to earth learning. It's just that the scary aspect of the movie is not real life.
   Classic. My kids loved this growing up, so will the grandkids.
My kids loved it. Yes, it's kind of scary, but I read to my kids before they can read themselves, so it gives us a chance to talk through what they are looking at, Mrs. Pearson said. I can talk about how silly his dream is and how ridiculous his laugh at the scariness is. It helps them manage their own bad dreams and gives them someone else to relate to. The parents complaining about this book crack me up. Instead of hiding your children from harmless things like a storybook, like this, give them the tools to cope with life and scary things!
   Too scary for small child
This was going to help my 3 year old with nightmares, but instead gave him more to have about them.
   Helped us!
Son has had bad dreams. This book helped him a lot, McCartney said. Along with being there for him, talking to him about dreams, this book helps children understand that dreams aren't real while asleep.

I needed a book to help my 2 1/2 year old who has severe nightmares. This just is there story of one bad dream, but no real explanation or lesson or anything helpful.
