You Are a Raccoon!

Dial. (Meet Your World). Apr. 2023. 32p. Tr $18.99. ISBN 9780593529720.
K-Gr 4–Thompson has crafted a truly wonderful book that not only pulls readers in with a cute tale about animals but also incorporates activities that mimic the lives of raccoons—all while being educational! The book walks readers through the adventure that is growing up as a raccoon, from when it is born to adulthood. Along the way are examples of activities the raccoon might do at that stage of life alongside examples of kids behaving in a similar way. Included are facts about raccoons, why they are important, and of course, why it’s equally important for kids to not interact with them. This is truly a perfect blend of education and fun with the addition of adorable illustrations.
VERDICT All libraries will want to include this in their children’s collections.
