This is another book my mom use to read to me as a little girl. She specially read this book to me when we had to move and change schools. This book is about a young racoon named Chester who is forced to move from his home due to deforestation and into a new home. The text displays the obstacles Chester encounters while saying goodbye to his home. The book ends with chester loving his new home and making new friends. This book could be used in a PreK-2nd grade classroom. The teacher could have new students read the book and talk about their thoughts on their new school or teachers might even read this to a group of children who transitioned from elementary to intermediate school.
