Why do we love this? Audrey Penn's uplifting book The Kissing Hand shares the story of Chester the Raccoon, who is afraid to go to school, and the family secret of the kissing hand as shared by his mother. This heartwarming book will help any child preare for a time of separation, whether starting daycare or school. It also includes a whole page of little heart stickers to put on your child's hand so that they can remember the story's message. "Leaning forward, Chester's mother kissed him right in the middle of his palm. Chester felt his mother's kiss rush from his hand, up his arm, and into his heart. Even his silky, black mask tingled with a special warmth."
