about

When a baby raccoon is swept downstream in an abandoned canoe, he feels afraid. But soon he notices all kinds of things he has never seen before, and from the safety of his little boat, he begins to explore the world around him. Paralleling the exciting-and often frightening-experience of a child's first adventure away from home, Raccoon on His Own offers little ones a glimpse of being on their own for the very first time.

"Enormous appeal for young children.  It's hard to imagine a more ideal book to read to a group... it offers just the right amount of tension with a reassuring resolution." -School Library Journal
