Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Always fascinating to children and adults, the little masked marvel of the forest is the subject of this thoughtfully composed volume for emergent readers. From the arresting cover on which the subject seems to be posing for the photographer, to the index with its listing of possibly troublesome words, the author and editors have tailored the product to fit the needs and interests of the young audience. Four compact chapters provide information that identifies raccoons, describes where they live, explains body parts, and investigates what raccoons do. Each page of text is paired with photographs or a map demonstrating the information just read. Special features include a glossary, a list of sources for further reading, Internet sites, as well as the index. An informative note to parents and teachers identifies the research that supports the book. This title is part of the "Woodland Animals" series. It is highly recommended for primary librarians, classroom teachers, parents, and especially beginning readers. 2006, Pebble Books/Capstone Press, Ages 4 to 8.
