Local Wellsboro author Kevin Coolidge is known for his children’s books, and one of those works was recently recognized by the Calvin Coolidge Presidential Foundation.
Coolidge is best known for his series chronicling the Totally Ninja Raccoons and their adventures. However, Kevin has written other children’s books dealing with true stories focusing on pets.
One such non-fiction book, “Rebecca, White House Raccoon”, was published by Coolidge in January 2021.
The true story captures the experience of a unique presidential pet – a raccoon! – living in the White House under President Calvin Coolidge and First Lady Grace Coolidge.
According to Coolidge, he was researching in 2015 for his first book in the “Totally Ninja Raccoon” series when he came across reports that US President Calvin Coolidge and First Lady Grace Coolidge were living with a pet raccoon.
Coolidge noted that everything written in the book is true, even about Rebecca going on vacation with the President and First Lady of South Dakota.
This unique children’s book by Kevin Coolidge was recently added to the Calvin Coolidge Presidential Foundation’s online store. Kevin Coolidge was delighted to learn that his book is now available for readers to purchase when they visit the Coolidge Presidential Foundation’s online website.
