When a baby raccoon takes an unexpected solo ride on an abandoned dugout canoe, being separated from his family is scary at first. But once he realizes the canoe offers security from scary creatures like snakes and alligators, he becomes brave and adventurous. He chatters with the warblers, reaches for the turtles, and takes comfort in his own reflection. All the while, mother is nearby with his two siblings, waiting for the time when he can come back to them. Whether it's the first day of kindergarten or a sleepover with grandparents, children will recognize all the apprehension, magic and discovery of being on their own for the very first time.

Good story time book! Just enough adventure to keep them engaged, but not scary.
