Little Critter imagines all of the exciting things he'll do when he gets bigger.
Going to the store, staying up late, and having a job! What will your child
envision when they get bigger?
When I get bigger by Mercer Mayer
When I get bigger I'll be able to do lots
of things. I'll go to the corner store by myself...and spend my allowance on
anything I want. I'll wait until the light is green. Then I work both ways for
cars before I cross the street. I'll have my own watch and tell everyone
what time it is. I'll go on a bus to Grandma and Grandpa's. I'll go to first
grade. When I get bigger I'll have a real leather football... my own radio,
and a pair of super Pro rollerskates. I'll have a two wheeler and a paper
route. I'll make lots of money. At the playground, I'll help the little kids on
the swings. I'll pick up my own boots at the shoe store. I'll make a phone
call and dial it myself. I'll order something from the catalog... and it will come
in the mail. When I get bigger I'll camp out in the backyard all night long.
or I'll stay up to see the end of the late movie. Even if I get sleepy,
I won't go to bed. But right now I have to go to bed...
because mom and dad say... I'm not bigger yet.
