Personal Response: I absolutely loved this book. I'm very familiar with the trickster tales of the American Southwest that primarily feature Coyote, but I loved reading this one about the raccoon. I thought this was very well done, and it has a great message for children and adults alike!Library/Classroom Uses:I will definitely be using this story in my school library. My students LOVE trickster tales, however, most of the ones we are familiar with deal with Coyote. I can't wait to read this book to my students along with other trickster tales. They're going to love this one!

I really like Raccoon's Last Race. I thought it really taught children not to be cocky about their abilites and to also respect and appreciate others. I also thought it sent the message, always keep your promise, to children.

Raccoon had very long legs, and was the fastest animals. He was very mean, and teased the other animals for being slow. One day, he messed with the wrong rock, and was flattened. When the ants helped him regain his shape, his legs were short and his body was stout. As of now, that is why raccoons are short and chubby. This book teaches a great lesson to not be cruel and mean to other people, because you do not know when you will need their help. I would use this book if I was covering a lesson on folklore tales, Indians, or even if a some of my students are being mean to each other in the class. It is important for everyone to be kind to one another, for it is a lesson that will carry you throughout your life.
