Summer Reading for PS-Grade 3 – coming to you from JEMSBOOKS EXPRESS! Spotlight on RICKY THE RAMBUNCTIOUS RACCOON!

This is the second post that I mentioned I would be sharing featuring one of each of my children’s books for your children to enjoy this summer or any time of the year. Here is the first one about Louey the Lazy Elephant. There are 19 children’s books in all, plenty to choose from about animals, in rhyme with life lessons. Hop on JEMSBOOKS EXPRESS and peruse all my children’s books today.

Here is the life lesson children will learn from Ricky:

Ricky the Rambunctious Raccoon – Ricky teaches children to always listen to your mother.

Here is the second book I published, Ricky the Rambunctious Raccoon in 2013. Ricky is an adorable raccoon who your children will love to meet. Please grab your copy today and bring Ricky home to delight your children while they learn valuable life lessons.



Ricky is a rambunctious or very active raccoon who likes to wander around to find something new to eat. One night during his foraging for food Ricky runs into all kinds of trouble. Will Ricky get home safely? Will he learn his lesson to listen to his mother?

This book was created after I observed some raccoons on our deck getting into mischief. We haven’t seen them back since. They were trying to get into our bird feeders and made a mess on our back deck.

In this story Ricky is a mischievous and rambunctious raccoon who ventures out on his own one night. What transpires is quite comical. Ricky gets into all kinds of trouble and remembers what his mother said about going out at night alone. Children will love this book which is done in nighttime mode to enhance the creatures and setting for raccoons. After all, they are nocturnal creatures.

Parents have made comments about this being so funny they laughed out loud. I love the illustrations created by my talented husband, John. I hope you will enjoy them too.
