In this contemporary classic Chester Raccoon seeks love and reassurance from his mother as he ventures out into the world to attend his very first day of school.
Publishers WeeklyPreS-Gr 2-This translation of Penn's book published in 1993 by the Child Welfare League of America deals tenderly with separation anxiety. A small raccoon is reluctant to leave his mother to go to school. The mother raccoon lovingly and patiently explains that her love will always accompany him. She kisses his paw and tells him to bring it to his cheek and remember her kiss anytime he feels lonesome or frightened. Children will love the fact that the raccoons go to school at night in a big old tree along with owls, moles, possums, mice, and bunnies. This is a beautifully illustrated book with a reassuring message lovingly rendered in Spanish. Recommended for public libraries and bookstores. M.O.B. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
