My daughter is now four years old and will be heading to Kindergarten in the Fall. We have been reading The Kissing Hand by 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. When Chester the raccoon is reluctant to go to kindergarten for the first time, his mother teaches him a secret way to carry her love with him.
It is truly a sweet and touching book. I suggest this book to any parent with growing children heading out into the world of new beginnings.
