Synopsis from Raincoast Books:
It’s time to find a place to sleep. Rokko the baby raccoon is sure he can find the perfect spot. He doesn’t need help from anyone, especially not his mommy. But when he finally does find the perfect spot, something is missing… what could it be? Perhaps someone to snuggle with?
The elongated shape of and the simple, chunky illustrations in Rokko from the Simply Read series are what first drew me to this book. The colours are simple, muted tones and the animals with their big black eyes will surely mesmerize little ones. The story is also delightful, with Rokko, the youngest in the family, wanting to show independance but still needing the support of family. It mirrors the life toddlers face, being little but wanting to be big. Rokko, as well as the other books within the Simply Read series, is a book that your child will enjoy from infancy up into their preschool years, well worn with love.
You can add Rokko to your personal library by visiting your local book store or visiting Raincoast Books. Visit our Kid’s Books section for other great book recommendations. What are you reading with your kids?
