While they may well build their dens in tree holes, they may also choose a spot less desirable to humanssuch as someones attic! Mother raccoon takes good care of her cute little babies, which are born blind and deaf. She nurses them and quite soon teaches them to climb trees (or houses) and how to search for food. Readers will see how the cubs learn to choose their mealsfrom fish and bugs to Fidos food and the seeds in a bird feederand how they eventually learn to live on their own. The gorgeous pictures of adorable raccoon cubs are sure to delight emergent readers.
