Kiddie Korner Review and Giveaway: Raccoon Tales by Joy DeKok (blog tour)

About The Book:
Raccoon Tales is the true-life journey in the first year of the lives of these little “wash bears.” Written in easy-to-read verse, author, Joy DeKok, tells the story with tenderness and energy. Readers will leave the story glad they came, knowing more about raccoons, and what a wild animal rescue and release looks like. Illustrator Leslie Helen Colwin’s art brings the story to life



Thoughts:

*I like to do my Kiddie Korner reviews with the help of my little ones. This means that their reactions are part of my opinion


My two really enjoyed this one! They loved the tale of the raccoon family growing up, and immensely enjoyed the beautiful illustrations. My seven year old read this one herself, and with my 3 (almost 4) year old I was able to read the book several different times. Why is this you ask? Well, the story of the Raccoon family is broken up into smaller "tales" which as a mom I enjoyed for my child with the shorter attention span.


Now from my POV:

I thought this was a great children's book. (note: it is a christian based book) This one teaches a great lesson of doing the right thing even though it's hard. It also teaches children to respect all God's creatures big or small.


I liked it for my kids and think it's a great addition to anyone's library. I also think Sunday School teacher's would like this for their younger groups.
