PUYB Blog Tour & Review: Raccoon Tales by Joy DeKok

19 March, 2010 Book Reviews 3

About the Book:

Raccoon Tales is the true-life journey in the first year of the lives of these little “wash bears.” Written in easy-to-read verse, author, Joy DeKok, tells the story with tenderness and energy. Readers will leave the story glad they came, knowing more about raccoons, and what a wild animal rescue and release looks like. Illustrator Leslie Helen Colwin’s art brings the story to life.

About the Author:
Joy is an author, national speaker, and author coach. From the time she was a little girl, she wanted to write for children. She has three published children’s books, a novel, and a devotional. You’re invited to visit her website at: www.believe4kids.com.

My Review:
This was an absolutely ADORABLE book! I had the funnest time reading this book to my kids. The way they sat there, hanging on every word that I read, proved that Joy DeKok did an OUTSTANDING job at creating this story for youngsters!

Joy brings us a first hand look at a life of a wild life animal, the raccoon. The way she created the story in a way that little ones understand the capturing and taking care of a wild animal,  really pulled me to the story…and I’m an adult! I also, love the way that the pictures really emphasize what Joy was trying to portray in her book. They are beautifully done and really capture the eyes of the reader.

I became a fan of Joy DeKok’s when I read her novel, Rain Dance (click here to see my review), and I am an ever bigger fan of her ability to create children’s books too! I give this children’s book a 5 star rating and will recommend to everyone who has little ones that love to read or be read to! Well done, Joy!
