The Kissing Hand
Audrey Penn


In this contemporary classic, Chester Raccoon seeks love and reassurance from his mother as he ventures out into the world to attend his very first day of school.

This book discusses the topics of separation, fear and grief. Though it centers around the first day of school, it is a book that can be used to open up the discussion about the realization that love will be with the child regardless of whether of not you are physically there. The lesson plan associated with this book is a very tangible reminder for a child of a person's love being with them all the time. Trace your hand and the hand of your child to give them the reality of your constant love. Whether it is the first day of school, you travel a lot for your job or a family member is dying, help reinforce to the child that love is forever.
