To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Not your typical Little Critter book. Not at all what I was expecting. I was hoping for a book to comfort my son who has nightmares but this book is a tad too scary for him. I have to change all the words around as I read it.
Mercer Mayer books always deliver a wholesome story time for children. The pictures are vivid and always hide little critters amongst the pages that children love to find. I read and cherished these books as a child and now have the joy of passing them on to my children.
I was hoping this book would help my son with how to get back to sleep after a bad dream but it doesn't. It's all about his bad dream and then the last page is being put back to bed. No comforting words, nothing. Not something I would buy if your looking for help with kids who have bad dreams.
As with pretty well all of Mercer Mayer's books, "What a Bad Dream" delivers a simple story line with his signature illustrations. My grandkids love these books. I guess that's why I bought a couple of dozen. :)
Little Critter is among my favourite books for children. He was mine as a child and I've carried on the tradition with my son who is now 22 and my daughter who is soon to be 4 (and is to be the recipient of these books.)
