ah, the memories of thanksgiving past this year, the only disasters were a busted brine bag (more brine [and turkey] on floor), and a broken chopper (glass on floor), and many instances of invoking the 3-second rule. 2014 is the year of cat-hair thanksgiving. but here's an oldie:well, thanksgiving eve has just turned into the nightmare that all holidays must become before they can blossom into success stories. book avalanche? check. shelf collapse in the fridge, covering me and floor with brine?

When I started this book I imagined the review would start with this video I had seen of an old woman who tried to shoo a raccoon off of her yard and instead the raccoon attacked her. I can't find the video though, and I'm wasting too much time now watching youtube videos of animals, so the review starts with me talking about what the review should have started with instead. The point I would have made about the video is that, like you and me, raccoons don't like be swatted at with a broom and i [...]
Frosty the raccoon is a baby "coon" with impulse control concerns. He frolics in a campground with rangers. The self-described "lady ranger" who wrote the book, Ranger Harriet says that she prayed to Jesus to see if the Lord would allow Frosty to live with humans and provide campground shows with the other "coons." The rangers describe how to turn on headlights and bang pots and pans to draw raccoons to the campground to provide a Big Raccoon Show. Personally, I would say that's too much work. J [...]
this book is the bomb, i just read it after finding it at my friend's house. My only complaint is that she blatantly encourages feeding people food to raccoons in big basin! this is just not ok!otherwise the book is totally adorable and i loved the endingosty is so adorable.
According to my diary, at the age of 12, I read this book. I know I was in love with all things animal related, so I am sure I must have enjoyed this at that time.
when i started this i was like "oh damn the raccoons gonna die at the end" but extra star for the raccoon not dying at the end
This is a heartwarming story of a lovable, orphaned raccoon raised by a loving Park Ranger who also wrote the book. She describes Frosty's adventures with humor, compassion, and wit. "Frosty: A Raccoon to Remember" reminds us what a gift each one of nature's creatures is. The book seemed to be listed under children's books; however, as an adult reading it for the first time, I found it enjoyable. The vocabulary and writing style is probably too advanced for most elementary school children, but m [...]
March 5 was the birthday of a friend. I had long planned to begin a book blog. Fulfilling the birthday wish of a friend seemed a really good time to finally get it started.‘Nathan asked his friends to write a review of a book that they enjoyed reading. I decided to base my review on a favorite book from my childhood. I recently had the pleasure of re-reading the book. I enjoyed the re-visitation. The book is Frosty: A Raccoon to Remember by Harriet E. Weaver.Frosty is a whimsical (and largely [...]
Oh Frosty, you scamp!!I got this book and was like, OK, it's a raccoon where can we possibly go with this Where can we not?!Honestly, I sorta wished I had a baby raccoon at some points.Then I remembered : It's a raccoon.Harriet is a park ranger who never says it, but I thinkreally wanted babies So I hope at some point she reached her full potential because her whole time with Frosty, Frosty is a substitute baby who gets himself into some serious hijinks.She feeds him with a bottle, coos to hi [...]
An Absolutely adorable book, had lots of good laughs over Frosty's personality.
I am such a sucker for animal stories. What started as an adorably kitschy find ended up making me laugh and pissing me off at the same time. Talk about anthropomorphizing! Frosty gets spanked! He even presents his rear at one point because he knows he is going to be spanked. Yes, it's another time, yes, some of it is unbelievably funny (sometimes intentional but most times not). There's even a recollection of someone who's so unfamiliar with raccoons that she thinks he's a monkey. Really, it's [...]
Josh loved this book and laughed throughout it at the antics of this “domesticated” orphan raccoon raised by a Park Ranger. I am not an animal-lover (I enjoy them from a distance, but I cringe at every mention of the raccoon sleeping in her bed, riding on her shoulders, playing in the toilet and tearing apart her house) so I wasn’t as crazy about the book. But I did learn a lot about raccoon habits and intelligence, and redwood trees at a CA state park near where I grew up. Josh said that [...]
One of my favorite books ever. I'm not sure if this is a true story but I hope it is (if it seems completely implausible to you just understand I am gullible!). The copy I read was on its way to the trash when I saved it. I absolutely adore Frosty. I don't want a raccoon for a pet but if I had the choice to be a raccoon I would totally do it. Raccoons are the best!If anyone has proof that this is a true story please let me know!
As my friend Ron put it "Born Free, but with a raccoon instead of a lion." It's cute at first as the only female park ranger is torn between her maternal instinct toward the raccoon and her desire to be thought of as tough and professional by her male coworkers. But then Frosty's antics became predictable and I lost interest once he was not an adorable, fuzzy, defenseless infant.
This book takes place at Big Basin State Park, near Santa Cruz, and tells the story of a female park ranger and the raccoon she adopted. I bought it on a camping trip, when I was young and read it many times.
The title speaks truth. Frosty is insanely intelligent, with his escapades and personality more clearly and warmly detailed than many authors can accomplish for their dogs. It left me giggling all over the place.
I read this book as a kid and have never forgotten it. Just requested it so Tommy can read it too. Very sweet story of an orphaned raccoon raised by a park ranger and ultimately released to the wild where he belonged.
This is my all time childhood favorite book I've always had a love for wildlife, but this wonderful book about an orphaned raccoon's antics helped fuel that love. Harriet does a fabulous job of telling the story of Frosty as he grows up with a park ranger. Thank you, Harriet!
Yet again I want a baby raccoon! This story of a mischievous critter was heartwarming. Though we know how it ends, it didn't fail to pull tears from my eyes. Wild animals are exactly that, even when we wish they could remain our pets.
I read this book when I was 12 years old. It was a turning point book for me. I went from a non-reader to someone who loved to read because of this book.
An entertaining, feel-good book. Light reading, but just the thing if you love animals and need a bit of a pick-me-up.
i'm a sucker for true animal stories.
This was a really cute story about a park ranger who finds and raises a baby raccoon until he's old enough to be returned to the wild. All of Frosty's crazy antics were really fun to read about.
Another really great Raccoon book.Tommy and I both loved it!
Entertaining, but it sure can give someone bad ideas about how to interact with wild animals. Also, over-the-top anthropomorphising.
Another really great Raccoon book.Tommy and I both loved it!
