Author: Audrey Penn

Genre: Children’s Book, Picture Book

Plot: It’s Chester Raccoon’s first day of school. But he’s very scared and doesn’t want to go. Mama Raccoon tells Chester all of the fun things he’ll be able to do at school. But Chester still doesn’t want to go. Mama gives Chester a secret way to know that she’ll always be with him. It’s called the kissing hand. Will it help Chester?

Rating: 4.5 – a cute book about overcoming fears

Opinion: This was one of my favorite books growing up. My parents read it to me a lot when I was struggling to adjust to a new school in the middle of the school year. It’s great for kids who are more sensitive. It’s a great book for kids are struggling with something big, new, and scary. It’s also good for a classroom to learn about emotions and ways to help with the big ones. Every kid loves the pictures, which are adorable. They love finding all the animals in the book. It’s a good book for the classroom and home.
