Good book to read at the beginning of the year to kindergartners, or at the end of each year to the younger ones (especially pre-k going to kinder) to get them prepared for the next year.

A heartwarming story about a mother and a child's bond and how much they love each other.

This is such an adorable story for young kids. Little Chester doesn't want to go to school (like many kids everywhere) but his mom gives him something to make going to school, and confronting other difficult situations, just a little bit easier. ( )

Adorable! Made me a little teary! Chester the raccoon is scared to go to school, so his mom teaches him about the "Kissing Hand"! I just about died! This is a must read for any little one who is nervous about going to school, or nervous about any activity that will seperate them from their mommy or daddy. Just freakin' adorable! ( )

This book is about the love between a mother racoon and her baby. Whenever the baby racoon is hurt, the mother racoon kisses her baby's hand so it feels better. When the mother has another baby she does the same thing for him and the older racoon gets jealous. She assures both her babies that she loves them both the same.
