Animal Tales: Raccoon, Bear, and Coyote

Spring 2009 Storytelling
Ages: 4 - 10 yrs.
CD Price: $14.95
Review:
Beginning with "Lotor on His Own" (the story of a young raccoon barely old enough to leave its home), suspense builds as this fledgling creature struggles to become an adult. "Osa's Moving Day" describes a bear's den-building adventure. The final story chronicles Hazard (a coyote) as he deals with both his own fierce hunger and his loyalty to the other hungry members in his pack.

Loaded with plush details about the habitat, feeding customs, and survival behaviors of the bear, coyote, and raccoon, these stories have solid appeal. These three exciting presentations are learning and listening treasures.
