This story follows a raccoon family during a night (i.e., their day). They sneak and snatch until the sun rises.
What I thought: A great raccoon book! I can't wait to use it for story time during this year's summer reading program. The illustrations are lovely. I really like the textured look of the paint,. The colors are perfect for the time of day and night. My favorites are cubs brushing their teeth, picnic, waiting for dawn, and in bed.
Story Time Themes: Raccoons, Nocturnal Animals
