Little Critter and his family have loads of fun at a harvest festival. They buy apples, go on a hayride, and pick out pumpkins for Halloween. So much FALL crammed in so few pages.
You can almost smell the autumn air!
Who doesn't love a little critter book :) This book is good for emergent readers. Lots of sight words and an easy to follow story about the little critters going to the fall festival.

This is a fabulous Little Critter Fall celebration book. Including all things about autumn and family togetherness; happiness and having fun. My adult special needs son and I really enjoyed sharing this book together and will read it again. Illustrations are wonderful as well, so for children who can't read text they would enjoy just looking at the illustrations. Again just a wonderful story book.

A festive read for your beginning reader. And of course Mayer's Little Critter illustrations are so fun!

The kids love the pumpkin-throwing machine, and they want to play horseshoes. They thought that was a silly name for a game ... then I figured out that they didn't know that horses wore shoes and theie shoes look different from the ones we wear.

The fourth nonfiction book I picked was Apples Make Juices and this book was also not on good reads. This book could be a 2nd-4th-grade book because it has a good amount of information about apples and fruits in it. This is a good read for kids to learn more about healthy fun foods.

I paired it with The Fall Festival, which is the one I posted on good reads. This book is a easy read for 1st-3rd graders that will get them about fall and apple picking. These books go great together because one is

Little Critter and his family go to the fall festival and have a great time. They pick apples, look for a Halloween pumpkin, and play a game of horseshoes. They get their dad to play the horseshoes and win them some stuffed animals. They then return home, Little Critter with a stomach ache from how many apples he ate.
I liked this book a lot and really enjoy the whole series. I think this would be a good book to use in the fall time and it also talks a lot about apples, so it would go well with a

Another Mercer Mayer book that all my kids enjoyed. My 5 yr old just adores Mayer and requests her books constantly. I read them at the breakfast or lunch table and even my 3 yr old twins get into them. We love trying to find the mouse and spider that seems to follow the main character around, they’re always doing silly things. Fun engaging themes that any child can relate to, a great addition to any children's library.

One thing I don't see enough of is fall themed books. I absolutely love fall and everything that happens during this season; the pumpkin patches, apple cider, fall leaves, falls crafts and even the smell in the air.

In this story Little Critter and his family go to a fall festival and partake in various festival activities including eating many apples. This is a fun story that makes me excited for fall even though I read it the first week of spring. Only six months away.

Little Critter and family head to the fall festival. They play games, pick apples and search for the perfect pumpkin. But, Little Critter gets carried away with sampling apples!

Children will love Mercer Mayer's vibrant illustrations. My own "Little Critter" loves to find Mouse and Spider on each page!

This book would be great to read to students before having a school fall festival.

Nice, timely story for us. It will be a good learn-to-read in about a year.

I began illustrating books in 1966. Since that time I have published over 300 books. Most of my books are about things that happened to me when I was a little kid. Now I'm a big kid and I write about things that happen now, especially with my own children. They always remind me of what it was like.

I was born in Arkansas in 1943. Boy, that was a long time ago! It's real fun to be an old kid. Then m
