Reviews
The Life Cycle of a Raccoon

"Crabtree's wonderful books for grades 2-5 are recommended picks: attention-grabbing jackets and subjects suitable for easy reports make them appropriate for both leisure reading and assignments. The 'Life Cycle' Bobbie Kalman titles newly published, Raccoon (0778706613) and Snake (0778706605) join others in the series, providing 32 easy pages of basic facts paired with eye-catching photos. Discussions of what a life cycle and life span are accompany surveys of these two creatures, with an index, glossary, and illustrations rounding out the photo-packed information." —Midwest Book Review, Children's Bookwatch, 10/03 "...enthusiastically recommended for both school and community library collections." ––Midwest Book review, Children's Bookwatch, 08/03
