PreS-Gr 1--Little Critter is back with another fun adventure sure to appeal to the bird lover in us all. The story is told with simple, repetitive text that is perfect for new readers. Little Critter and Little Sister find a bird, and with the help of Mom and Dad, they learn the importance of how to care for a baby bird. The colorful images add to the story and show how Little Critter has changed with the times; for instance, Father uses his cell phone to take a photo of the baby bird's new family. VERDICT Little Critter never fails to delight children and is a welcome addition to your collection.--Andrea Pavlik, Huntington Public Library, NY
