Many children feel anxious when they have to be separated from their parents or caretakers.
The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn provides not only a good story, but also a wonderful way to deal with that type of anxiety.
Chester Raccoon does not want to go to school. He does not want to leave his mother, and he’s afraid of the new people and places he will see. His mother shares a family secret with Chester – the kissing hand – which will remind Chester that she loves him all throughout the day.
This beautiful story could start a new tradition in your family. Highly recommended for ages 2 – 8.
