I have reviewed several of the Slugs and Bugs stories by Randall Goodgame, and liked this one the best. The tempo of the rhyming was bouncy and did not seem forced. It’s a sturdy, colorful book (about the same size and format as the popular Dr. Seuss books) that youngsters will enjoy.
The story reminds young raccoons (and children) that we should not boast about our good deeds, or compare our gifts to the gifts of others. Each one should give cheerfully, as he is able. The lesson is a good one, and the illustration youngsters will be able to easily grasp the example used to illustrate it.
The ending Bible quote is:
“Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.” 1 Corinthians 1:31
VERDICT: I give it 4 stars. It is nothing out of the ordinary, but I liked it.
