A Perfect Home for a Family by David Harrison –OPTIONAL

Harrison, David and Illustrated by Angaramo, Roberta  A Perfect Home for a Family 32 pgs. Holiday House, 2013. $15.26.  Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G ;  Violence: G.
When Mama and Papa Raccoon family is about to grow, they want just the perfect place to live, but their tree is too crowded and noisy. They hire a real estate agent and get to work, but nothing seems quite right.
Adorable artwork! Would be fun for a lesson to introduce the concept of animal homes. As far as the story goes, I was a bit irritated about how picky the couple was, for example when their tree was crowded they could have embraced the community that was there.
