    Sweet story about growing pains and missing those we love Chester doesn't want to go to school he will miss his mother It's a great idea that the mother comes up with She kisses his hand and tells him the kiss will stick all day Wonderful idea You carry the energy of that love with you all day and it's a reminder that we can all do thatI remember school felt long as a child It felt like it would never end I think this would have been comforting if I had known about it The kids here love their parents dearly and they are also extraverts If they get to socialize they don't look back The nephew still liked this book and he had his mother kiss his hand because he liked it He gave the book 5 stars The niece said she read this when she was a kid which she probably did

    This book was a special favorite of my daughter Sarah For several months I read this to her almost every night often kissing her hand to say goodnight Even now my eyes are misty thinking of those wonderful evenings and how tiny Sarah wasThe best books are those that have wonderful memories attached to them

    “The Kissing Hand” is another wonderful well known children's story I discovered Audrey Penn was a ballerina Olympic figure skating choreographer and theatre actress who needed a new creative outlet when arthritis halted dancing and skating Also in Maryland is Nancy Marie Morton Leaks one of this book's artists She has a husband four children and spiritual leanings The second illustrator hails from England A glance at any Ruth E Harper profile shows she is hilarious Even better she tenderly holds one of her two kitties a calico in her portrait They moved to Colorado “The Kissing Hand” is the most famous work by all of them and I understand why I enjoyed the drawings and words to the tune of five starsA friend commented that the short length of this story is inclined to tiny children but that it has a sophistication that raises it to higher levels She is right The main reason I love it is because due to being short there is no space for inventing drama via some harrowing situation I think we can teach good things and create good feelings without characters getting into mishaps nor any unpleasantness; I truly do Happy endings with minimal stress are for meChester raccoon is unsure he will like animal night school which is beginning in a nearby tree His Mom kisses his hand and tells Chester that he can keep the love it generated permanently That is it and it is beautiful Delving deeper the astuteness of differentiating nocturnal animals is clever and so are the illustrations The moral is sound that things turn out all right even if we are nervous about them It is also a very profound concept that love is a tangible energy to keep with us even while a loved one isn't present

    This is a sweet story with gorgeous illustrationsThe premise is that the love between those we love and those who love us doesn’t go away even when we’re not in their presence This could be a helpful book for children starting school or going through any sort of separation from loved onesUnfortunately the children who need it the most are unlikely to get much solace from this book and the children who already feel secure and loved will enjoy this and it might be useful for them but they don’t have as much need of this reassurance either It is a touching story though and worth reading for the sentiment expressedIt’s also worth reading for the beautiful illustrations Chester Raccoon is so appealing that I’m a raccoon fan againApparently it’s published with stickers in the back but I read a library copy and its stickers were missing The foreword states this book is useful for children going through any kind of challenging separation and mentions children who are in foster care residential care experiences the death of a parent and starting school or in the hospital I’d say yes to the last two but most likely not to the first three but it does depend on the child

    A beautiful touching story about how we always hold the love of those closest to us even when we cannot see them I adore the idea of the kissing hand and though this book may have become a bit commercialized with the accompanying stickers the heart of the tale is pure and one that I think many children and adults can relate to

    This is such a cute book i love the concept of how his mom will always be there with him if he misses her he can just put his palm on his cheek and he will feel better The book also shows how children will mimic or model after the people around them like how chester gave his mom a kissing hand too I wish my mother did something like this when i had anxieties of going to school

    This book has been a savior in my house My 4 year son does not want to go to preschool and this book has helped tremendously with tear free drop offs Chester is a little raccoon that does not want to leave his mother to go to school In a nutshell she kisses his hand and tells him she will be with him And being the cry at anything mother I am at the end of the book I was choking back tears as he tells her the same thing My son's preschool teacher has made a stuffed Chester the class pet and does many activities with the raccoon and the book Every morning we go through the Chester ritual and I thank this book and his teacher for helping us both cope
