Little Critters New Inspired Kids Line #sponsored

Little Critters books, Mercer Mayer, Tommy Nelson


I received a copy of the Little Critters books for review purposes as as a Tommy Nelson Mommy.  All opinions are my own.

I remember reading Little Critters books growing up.  My mom would bring home books from the library for nightly read-alouds.  These were memorable characters with little life lessons.   I just recently discovered that Little Critters is now available with faith-based messages!

We received two paper-back books from the InspiredKids collection for ages 2-7: It's True and You Go First


You Go First, Mercer Mayer

In You Go First, Litter Critter loves being first—even if it hurts his family and friends. After several missteps, Little Critter learns that the secret to getting along is treating others the way he wants to be treated—which, in Little Critter’s case, means letting someone else be first.

It's True, Mercer Mayer 
In It's True, Little Critter thinks that sometimes it’s easier to tell part of the truth instead of the whole truth. He learns quickly that lying has consequences and that telling the truth, no matter how hard, is always the right thing to do.


These books have fun illustrations and important lessons for my preschooler presented in a way she can relate to and understand. I like that there is also a Bible verse included at the beginning of the book.

The Attic Baby loves trying to find the hidden animals on each page that are known to Little Critters readers (sometimes a mouse, a spider, or even a grasshopper).   These are great for reading before bedtime or any time of day!


Where to Buy:

Both books are available on the Thomas Nelson website

Yes we have used them. We don't have these but my father-in-law has bought the kids books and he is a pastor so he gets so many good ones.

I love Little Critters books and the whimsical illustrations are perfect for little ones.

I have tried to teach them kindness and that they are all God's creatures. I do have a few books that help illustrate that.
