Happy Belated Birthday Mr. Mercer Mayer!!!!
Mr. Mercer Mayer turned the big 69 on December 30th!!!
Mr. Mercer Mayer was born on December 30th 1943, in Little Rock Arkansas, and is an Award winning American Children's Book author and Illustrator of over 300 Children's Books!! Some of his well known books are Little Critter's and Little Monster's series! When Mayer drew from his own childhood experiences in creating stories, he struck a chord with children and parents alike!!
He stated that, "Most of my books are about things that happened to me when I was a little kid. Now that I'm a big kid, I write about things that happen now, especially with my own children and grandchildren. They always remind me of what it is like to be little."
Mercer Mayer's Little Critter appeals to young reader who identify with his first-person narration of his thoughts, feelings, ideas and inspirations as he navigates the challenges of childhood. Life in Critterville mirrors the everyday experiences of children everywhere! Little Critter and his best friends, Tiger and Gator love to play sports, read comics, ride skateboards and go on school field trips, out for pizza and to the movies! And just like real life kids, they deal with challenges, help their friends, love their pets and get annoyed by their younger siblings while striving for Independence and a better understanding of their world.
Kids empathize with Little Critter and the situations he finds himself in that are so familiar to them, and laugh along at his heart-warming and ever hopeful efforts to negotiate the world. Little Critter shows that it's all right to fail and try again, and to keep trying until you get it right, And just as importantly, have fun and laugh at themselves in the process, which perhaps the biggest secret of all!
I can remember when I was very young, My late Grandma would read me Little Critter books, and remember that I would climb up in her chair right beside her and listen to her as she read it to me, over and over lol!! Funny how some things can trigger great memories!!
