The Kissing Hand

The Kissing Hand
Audrey Penn
Little Chester Racoon is afraid to go to school. He wants to stay home with his mom and play with his toys. His mother explains that school will be fun and have new toys. But Chester is still apprehensive. So his mother gives him a special kiss so he'll have a kissing hand to take to school and use if he gets scared or lonely.

The illustrations are a very large part of the story. They are very well done and incorporate well with the text. The words flow smoothly and really paint a beautiful word picture of a mother's love. I think I enjoyed this as much as my daughter did. When we finished I asked for her thoughts. She said she loved it and to make sure I gave it 5 stars. I reviewed this on my iPad, but am going to purchase a paper copy so that my daughter can look at it whenever she wants. Overall, this was a precious book that I highly recommend every parent getting for their children.

I received this book free of charge from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
