Raccoons in the Corn is a tale to be enjoyed by kids and the adults who read to them. Any sweet corn grower knows that raccoons love the stuff. The ornery critters wait until the crop is perfectly ripe and strike with military precision, leaving the frustrated gardener licking his lips over what might have been the best crop ever. The story begins with Farmer B. scanning seed catalogs to plan his spring corn planting. Details of the planting and defensive strategies help build suspense. How will Farmer B. cope if all his best laid plans fail?  This is a fun “read to me” story or “read yourself” at about grade 4 reading level.

    I think Farmer B. is funny when he loses his temper.

    This book is fun because the raccoons are cute and crafty. They are good at getting the corn from Farmer Baldridge.

    These Raccoons are sneaky and smart. They put a bunch of weeds on the electric wire so they could get into the corn patch to eat all the corn.

    This is a really cute story that should hit home to anyone out there who has tried to compete with these “masked bandits” for the wonderful Ambrosia sweet corn we plant on our home farm. My nieces and nephew enjoyed the story, as did their Grandpa, who helps me each summer with our own corn patch. We also bought the game and it’s easy for even the young ones. They really enjoy sending Grandpa back to Start when they land on his square. It’s given us some laughs as we wait out the cold and snow so we can start a new growing season. Thanks!

    My grandkids LOVE this book. We have had a whole day of activities based on this book! It is the one they ask for over and over! The perfect match is the “Raccoons” Board Game! Very simple yet entertaining for little ones! I will buy more from this author! Love her simplistic, homey style!!

    I just love this book! Jerilynn was my English teacher in high school! When I found out she was writing books, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them. Those crazy raccoons make the kids giggle every time!
