About the Story​
Healthy eating and exercise are the focus of this book. All of Raccoon’s friends are having fun in the sun, but Raccoon stays inside and doesn’t move. When he finally decides to join in the fun, Raccoon is too out-of-shape to get out of his burrow without help. His friends remind him that he has to exercise and eat right to stay healthy.
