The Special Raccoon
Helping a Child Learn About Handicaps and Love
written and illustrated by Kim Carlisle
This is a lovingly illustrated, unusually moving story of two raccoon sisters, one of whom is profoundly handicapped. In the course of the beautiful spring day they spend together, the "normal" sister learns to accept and appreciate the uniqueness of each one of us.
