Little masked raccoons appeal to children. They find them both comical and endearing. This little raccoon, who can be counted on for nothing and is not at all trustworthy, is sure to help them learn and remember the important character trait of trustworthiness. Children will laugh at Ricky popping up out of his hollow stump, but they will become serious when Ricky’s other antics are told. They will be especially serious as Ricky waits for The Elder One to explain trustworthiness.
Trustworthiness is not an easy character trait to teach, especially when teaching young children. Ricky Raccoon helps you get the job done. Ricky helps children learn what trustworthiness is not, and then helps them learn, with him, what it is. The easy Trustworthiness Song reinforces the lesson. 32 pages
