Just Me And My Puppy by Mercer Mayer

Several of the books we read this week had a reoccurring theme: puppies. Just Me And My Puppy by Mercer Mayer starts with Little Critter trading his mitt for a friend’s puppy (don’t get any ideas boys). Little Critter gets to keep the puppy as long as he takes care of it and so ensues his attempts to train his puppy. Of course the results aren’t quite what he was going for.

Using pipe cleaners and the instructions from Twisted Critters we twisted up a puppy and a mouse (because of the mouse Mercer Mayer often includes in the illustrations). The boys love them. The only downside is that the pipe cleaners don’t hold up well to  a lot of  handling (especially the handling by a 2 yr old).

  1. That is SO adorable! My little man (also 2) is currently in love with Little Critter! I hadn’t heard of “Twisted Critters” before, so I looked it up on Amazon and added it to my cart 🙂 I found you on Living Life Intentionally and from you have started reading A Mommys Adventures. Thanks for sharing!
