Review: The Society of Extraordinary Raccoon Society on Boasting by Randall Goodgame

The Society of Extraordinary Raccoon Society on Boasting by Randall Goodgame, Illustrated by Joe Sutphin
Stephanie's Rating: 5 out of 5 bookmarks

This is the second book in the "Slugs & Bugs" series called The Society of Extraordinary Raccoon Society, or SOERS. If you have listened to the Slugs & Bugs music, you might already be familiar with The SOERS as they are favorite characters from the songs.

In the inaugural SOERS book, two young raccoons, Maggie and Morty, are introduced to sharing instead of stealing. Now we join the reformed raccoon pair as they begin to boast to each other about how much better he or she is sharing compared to the other! Into this scene steps wise old Chauncey, who lyrically guides them to the understanding that when we give, we should not boast of the deed. The two repent yet again and go on to give gracefully.

This is a cute book with a clear message. This volume did a great job of making the message simple and easy to understand. The artistry is still great, colors are vibrant, and the scenes are interesting.

This is a good book for children ages 4 to 10 to discuss both sharing and not boasting.

Also, note that the odd typesetting issue from the first book was corrected in this one so the line breaks and rhyme schemes flow much more naturally.

Stephanie Garrett is a busy homeschooling mom of three who somehow always finds time to read. She has been a voracious reader since childhood and even won a bicycle in elementary school for having read the most books! She enjoys learning and growing and never turns down an opportunity to try something new. Her first love is the Lord and service to Him, second is family, and reading. She believes that anyone who learns to read with comprehension can go anywhere and do anything! She also enjoys music, theatre, sewing, and mathematics.
