Everyone in our library just loves Little Critter and all of the books that Mercer Mayer wrote about him.
Our kindergarteners learned more about him in September and even created an eBook with their own illustrations and words called Just Me and Little Critter.
Last year we had the honor of inviting Mercer to our library through Skype....It was one of the BEST author visits and we all enjoyed him so much.
You can see the Animoto and post from the day at Mercer Mayer and Little Critter Visits Van Meter and Amana Elementary...What a Special Day It Was!
Everyone was really excited to invite Mercer back to our library this year.
He Skyped with the Van Meter first and second graders in our library.
Just So Thankful, just in time for Thanksgiving.
One of our students asked him how he drew Little Critter.....
so he did!
Thank you Mercer....You are a wonderful author, illustrator, and most of all friend to all of the young people that you share your stories with everyday.
