~~ Be content and thankful for what you DO have ~~
Reviewed in the United States on December 4, 2015
Published by Thomas Nelson it is obvious from the beginning (scripture reference of Psalm 107:1) that this particular Little Critter book is based on Christian principles. Written in first person by Little Critter, the opening page has him wishing for a scooter in the shop window rather than being thankful for the one he already has. Little Critter continues to be ungrateful, always wishing for something "better". Even a talk from Dad doesn't stop him.
A word of caution here. If you do not like your child reading about being nasty to a sibling this might not be the book for you. When Little Sister bumps into Little Critter, causing him to drop his ice cream cone he says "I wish I had a big brother instead of a dumb little sister like you." Needless to say, Little Critter's mom reprimands him. The next day Little Critter is out at Grandma's farm. How did this trip help change Little Critter's attitude?
This book has a tremendous lesson for all of us, not just the kids. FANTASTIC story to share with your family. Thanks, Liz
