Synopsis by Alice Day
The author of the featured book Raccoons and Ripe Corn, Jim Arnosky, invites LeVar Burton to his home state of Vermont, where they discuss the inspiration for the story. They take a hike, observing signs of animals such as beavers and raccoons. The book is read by Julia Barr and involves raccoons and mice that raid a cornfield in Reading Rainbow: Raccoons and Ripe Corn. Arnosky's other books about wildlife are also covered, including Deer at the Brook and Come Out Muskrats. The child-reviewed segment looks at My First Nature Book, Bird Watch, and Tree Trunk Traffic.
