    School is starting in the forest, but Chester Raccoon does not want to go. To help ease Chester's fears, Mrs. Raccoon shares a family secret called the Kissing Hand to give him the reassurance of her love any time his world feels a little scary. Since its first publication in 1993, this heartwarming book has become a children's classic that has touched the lives of millions of children and their parents, especially at times of separation, whether starting school, entering daycare, or going to camp. It is widely used by kindergarten teachers on the first day of school. Stickers at the back will help children and their parents keep their Kissing Hand alive.

    • Perfect for child starting school
      Verified Purchase

      Very touching book! This is a favorite of mine and both of my daughters. Helped prepare them (and me!) for the issue of leaving parents to start kindergarten. I bought these on Overstock so I could give each of my girls a copy to take to college with them with a handwritten note from me inside. They loved it!
