Week of Reads – The Kissing Hand #2

All week I will feature a favorite book with some activities to match.
Second Up is The Kissing Hand – Click Here to Purchase or to Learn more!
In the story Chester the raccoon talks about his fear of going to school. Most of the fears will be very familiar to primary aged children who are just getting back to school. Chester’s Mom helps him feel loved and secure by kissing the center of his hand. She reminds Chester that her love is always right there and if he should feel frightened or scared or lonely he should simply hold the hand to his face and he will feel her love. Read this story through a couple of times before reading it to your class or your child . If you are a sap like me, then your heart will warm up and a tear will appear in your eye. I love this book!
