The name "raccoon" comes from an Algonquin Indian word that means, "he scratches with his hands." This is a perfect name for a creature that can use its nimble hands to climb, dig, catch fish, or even untie a rope or open a refrigerator!

Review:

"Each book in this series highlights an animal commonly found in North America...Interesting and text-enhancing photographs abound...If your elementary animal collection needs new titles, these choices would make solid additions to most libraries. Glossary...Index. Recommended."
-- Library Media Connection (March 2003) (Library Media Connection 20030301)

"Each book in this series highlights an animal commonly found in North America... Interesting and text-enhancing photographs abound (at least one photo on every page). If your elementary animal collection needs new titles, these choices would make solid additions to most libraries. Recommended."
-- Library Media Connection (March 2003) (Library Media Connection 20030301)

"Attractive in design and layout, these books are sure to spark the interest of young nature enthusiasts... Readers learn about the animal's habitat, physical and behavioral traits, special features, mating and familial practices, and human/animal interactions. Each topical spread includes text and two to four full-color photos, many of which were taken at close range. Children will enjoy reading these titles for pleasure, and will use them for reports."
-- School Library Journal (February 2003) (School Library Journal 20030201)

From Booklist:

Reviewed with Melissa Cole's Giraffes.

Gr. 3-5. Raccoon is part of the Wild America series; Giraffes is part of the Wild Africa series.They have exactly the same attractive, compact photo-essay design, with big color pictures and detailed text on every page. They work very well together, but, of course, each title stands alone: the towering giraffe in central and southern Africa and the small raccoon commonly found in backyards in the U.S. may both be wild animals, but they are different in where and how they live and in their relations with humans. The Leesons' photographs in Giraffes are splendid, with close-up views (including one showing two giraffes rubbing their necks together in a kind of hug) as well as pictures of the tallest of all land creatures loping across the grassland. In Raccoon the photos are from several sources, and some text is printed on the photos, which makes it hard to read. Both books are packed with information in short chapters on the animals' social lives, anatomy, feeding, mating, and more. Hazel Rochman
