Roxy, Rufus, and Renae are three young raccoons who are slowly learning how to live in the world beyond their den. But when humans come to their creek, the world suddenly expands far beyond what they thought was possible -- or what their Mama was prepared to teach them.
Three little raccoons and their mother are fascinated and horrified by how a human family responds to losing -- then finding -- one of its children along the banks of their creek. The humans are likewise fascinated and horrified when they realize their habits have made their home a critical, if risky, source of food. These misperceptions come to a head when the humans encounter the "nuisance" wildlife on their property. After one of the human children takes one of the kits home, the young raccoons mount a dangerous rescue mission to get their little sister back.
Appropriate for children ages 7 to 9 and dyslexia-friendly, Raccoon Rescue comes with a set of curriculum enhancements, including discussion questions and a glossary quiz, and extension activities that teachers or homeschoolers can implement as part of their literature, science, and/or social studies curricula.
A portion of the proceeds from sales of Raccoon Rescue will go to the Liberty, SC-based wildlife rescue and sanctuary that helped to inspire the book.
About the author:
Too goody-two-shoes for the rebels and too rebellious for the good girls and boys, Christa M. Miller writes fiction which, like herself, doesn't quite fit in. A professional writer for 15+ years, Christa has written in a variety of genres ranging from crime fiction to horror to children's, but her favorite stories to write -- and read -- are those which blend genres. She has an affinity for the dark, psychological, and somewhat bizarre, but doesn't let that stop her from snuggling baby animals as a volunteer at a local wildlife rescue, adventuring with her two sons in rivers, swamps, and salt marshes, or relaxing with a good book and a cold beveragein her hammock. Christa is based in Greenville, SC.
