Book Description

1 May 2014
During the last 20 years, parents and teachers have passed along the secret of the Kissing Hand to children facing first days of kindergarten, first grade, and other separations. Now younger children can get in on Mama Raccoon's secret and find comfort in A Kissing Hand for Chester Raccoon, a board-book adaptation of the original picture book. Chester could feel his mother's kiss Leap straight into his heart. "With a Kissing Hand," said Chester's mom, "We'll never be apart." "Just press your hand upon your cheek And feel that loving glow. It's Mommy saying, 'I love you,' Wherever you may go." The Kissing Hand has become a children's classic that has touched the lives of millions of children and their parents. A Kissing Hand for Chester Raccoon conveys the heart of the story in rhyming verse, perfect for read-aloud and easy for even the little ones to remember and recite. With illustrations by Barbara Gibson that capture the warmth and beauty of the original artwork, toddlers now share in the benefits from Mrs. Raccoon's secret for making a child feel safe and secure.

‘A Kissing Hand for Chester Raccoon’ written by Audrey Penn and illustrated by Barbara Leonard Gibson is a board book adaptation of the original picture book with which grew up many generations of kids for the past 20 years, a story that would make small child feel loved and secure.

It is not difficult to describe in words, but once you take a book in your hands you will even more realize why ‘A Kissing Hand for Chester Raccoon’ has become such a hit – its story written in easy to remember rhymes, perfect for reading aloud, makes Penn book appealing for the youngest audience.

Ms. Gibson illustrations that evoke the warmth and security of home are additional quality of this edition causing this edition can be both recommended to those who had an older version of book worn out from many readings or others which have their first child and are looking for the first picture book with which their toddler will enjoy immensely.

3.0 out of 5 stars Abbreviated version 20 Jun 2014
By Wondermom - Published on Amazon.com

I bought this to go in a gift basket of favorite books for a friend. I chose the board book version since it was going to a one-year-old. This is an ABBREVIATED version of the original book. We have and like the original book (large, hardback picture book). It's a sweet story, and my older child found it amusing that Chester goes to school at night with other nocturnal animals. The shortened version of this board book doesn't get to the part where Chester goes to school. It stops just after Chester's mom kisses his hand. (No Chester giving a kissing hand to mom in return).

By kim zupan - Published on Amazon.com
I love to begin the school year with this story on the first day of class. After reading, we trace each child's hand and send it home for mom to kiss after applying her lipstick. The hands are then returned to school and we cut them out, laminate them and tape them in reach of the children to use whenever they need to feel the love of their mommy:)
