Chester Racoon and the Acorn Full of Memories

Renn, Audrey. Chester Raccoon and the Acorn Full of Memories. Tanglewood. ISBN: 9781933718293.

Chester Raccoon and the Acorn Full of Memories by Audre Renn is a fictional book. It is about when Chester Raccoon's friend was in an accident and he won't be back to play and how they make memories. Chester comes home and tells his mom that Skiddil Squirrel would not be coming back. Chester is still very sad and misses his friend a lot. Chester's mom got an idea to find something that Skiddil liked to make a memory. The art work was very detailed paintings and they were very beautiful. This book takes place in the forest. This book was a great book. My favorite part was when they came up with a memory when Skiddil made his friends stop to see a butterfly come out of its chrysalis and he made them all late for school. Another good part is where Chester and his friends went to the butterfly pond. I would recommend this book for little kids ages five through ten years-old. They would like the part when Skiddil was at the butterfly pond and a gazillion butterflies landed on him all at once and he thought he could fly so he jumped over the pond and splashed into the water. All the butterflies flew away and Skiddil was soaking wet.
