KIRKUS REVIEW

Poking his wet head out of his bath, Little Raccoon asks his mother an important question: “When do you love me most of all?” He offers many guesses, wondering whether it’s when he wakes her in the morning, or when he has good manners at the table. Is it when he plays in the trees with the other raccoons or when he swims all the way across the pond and back? Finally tired and ready for bed, Little Raccoon is out of guesses. Hugging him close to her chest mother tells him her answer, “Now.” Little Raccoon’s big brown eyes shine from the pages as he tries to guess when he’s most loved. Bath times in a mixing bowl and play time in a many-limbed tree rendered in acrylics and ink offer amusing illustrations to accompany the quiet story. (Picture book. 3-5)
