Beginning Reader Review of Just a Little Sick by Mercer Mayer

Read for: Early Reader Challenge
Synopsis: "Little Critter has a day off from school!

When Little Critter® feels just a little sick, Mom lets him stay home from school. Hooray! But between visiting the doctor and staying inside all day, missing school is not what Little Critter expected.

Just a Little Sick is a simple story—perfect for emergent readers who are eager to join Little Critter on his adventures. "

My Review: A nice little lesson from Little Critter about being sick and discouraging acting sick. The sentences are simple, though it is a beginning reader and is more meant to be read with the words and sentences pointed out or allowing the child to read what they can. The images are great for deciphering the sentences as well. I read this one with Munchkin on a day he stayed home from work sick and he loved finding the little spider in each picture too.
My Rating: This has a nice little lesson wrapped into a simple easy to read story. Munchkin has started to try acting sick to get out of doing things so it came at the perfect time.  We give it a rating of Three Paws and a Stump Wag.
