The Kissing Hand, by Audrey Penn, is one of our favorite books! Chester Raccoon doesn’t want to go to school and leave his mother. She gently reassures him by showing him the secret of the kissing hand. Chester returns the favor by sharing the kissing hand with his mother. The story will warm your heart! The reassuring love of a parent for his/her child makes this a timeless message. This is the perfect book to read as your child has a change in his/her life requiring a separation from a parent.We love to read this book as school starts each year. Enjoy this book with your family!
