More About Mercer Mayer
Mercer Mayer began writing and illustrating children's books in 1966, and since that time, he has published over 300 titles. Open almost any of the award-winning author/illustrator's books, and out may pop dragons, cuddly monsters, wonderful creatures, and endearing critters. "Most of my books are about things that happened to me when I was a little kid," says Mercer. "Now that I'm a big kid, I write about things that happen now, especially with my own children. They always help remind me of what it was like." Born in Little Rock, Arkansas, Mercer Mayer spent his childhood hunting lizards and snakes in the swamps near his home. During his teenage years, he attended the Honolulu Academy of Arts. He later received additional training at the Art Students League in New York City. Upon completion of his studies, he set out with pen and ink to write and illustrate a collection of children's books, reflecting many of the adventures he experienced as a child. In 2007, Mr. Mayer was commissioned by Laura Bush to create the artwork used for the National Book Festival held on September 29 on the National Mall. He was an honored guest to the event, giving a demonstration and autographing hundreds of books for fans who attended.
Mercer Mayer currently resides in the state of Connecticut. Mercer Mayer was born in 1943.

Great for Language Learning Apr 8, 2008
Mercer Mayer's series of books are not only great for Children who are beginning to speak, they are also fantastic tools for language learning. Wordless books allow a language learner and their language helper to learn vocabulary and construct stories together in the target language. It is great for vocabulary consolidation, grammar development, and the development of storytelling skills.
Endless possibilities Mar 24, 2008
This book has wonderfully cute illustrations (all black and white). There aren't any words on a single page, which allows the reader to make up their own story based on what's happening in the pictures. It's perfect for the very young, non-reader, and even for the seasoned grade schooler. This book allows you to be creative and perceptive. It's a lot of fun.
What a great idea! Jan 30, 2006
My 3 year old son absolutely loves this book. Although there are no words, it gives him a great opportunity to use his imagination. The pictures are simple and as he makes up the words for each page it gives him the feeling of accomplishment of finishing a book on his own.
An Entertaining Book Oct 27, 2005
This is an excellent book for speakers of other languages and for Deaf students. As an American Sign language teacher, I use this book to encourage my students to think outside the box, to learn to express in ASL what they see in this book. The characters are so expressive and actions so clear that it is easy for others to understand what is happening. I also use this book for ASL assessment to evaluate how children retell the stories in ASL.
A Boy, A Dog and A Frog Aug 9, 2005
This book is wonderful. I am planning to use it in a research project for my dissertation in clinical psychology. It allows the children to tell there own story and also pulls for emotions so that the mother and child can discuss different emotions. The pictures are illustrated well. This is a rich picture book that allows for the child and/or parents to tell a story and focus on what they feel is important. It encourages creativity in children
