Chester Raccoon begs to stay home when it is time to go to his first night at school. Mrs. Raccoon gently snuggles the young cub and tells him a family secret that promises to make his nights away at school as warm and cozy as his days at home: it’s called, The Kissing Hand. Set in rhyme and meter, A Kissing Hand For Chester Raccoon tells the same story as the original The Kissing Hand, but for younger children 0-5.
Though they are not Kissing Hand Books, look at these works addressing additional childhood issues and topics:
Sassafras addresses self-esteem
A.D.D. Not B.A.D. discusses Attention Deficit Disorder and hyperactivity
Feathers and Fur addresses diversity and kindness
