The Players

Ricardo Raccoon

2nd grade

Ricardo acts a little immature and sometimes his feelings get the better of him. He and Sarina have a lot of conflicts that they need to work out. He loves to play soccer and is very competitive. He really misses his Dad who died in a car accident, but he likes living with his aunt and cousin Betsy who take good care of him. He has a lot to learn about making decisions and the consequences of his actions. He works hard at learning how to make healthy choices and taking care of his feelings. Ricardo has an easy time identifying with the new kid Amir.
