stART: Raccoon on His Own

Fall has finally reached our area of the south, and we have been studying fall-related themes.  For stART (story+art) this week, we read Raccoon On His Own by Jim Arnosky.  The book follows baby raccoon as he travels through the swamp in a dugout canoe.

We made a raccoon to go along with the story.  I just free-hand cut the parts out of paper and Miss M glued them on.  Miss M traced her hands to make the raccoon's eye mask.  The stripes on the tail were just colored with black marker.

  3. What an adorable raccoon! I really like Jim Arnosky books. I don't think we've read that one, though.

  4. I love your racoon, my mom had a racoon in the garage a while ago and that is all the girls could talk about. I will have to check out this book they would love it and the project too :0)

  5. LOVE Jim Arnosky books - they are all so beautiful! And that is most likely the cutest racoon I've ever seen. :) Those hand cutouts are adorable - what a super idea!
