Lesson: How Do Families Change Over Time?
  ccsdss | Feb 26, 2016 |
This book by Audrey Penn is another one of my favorites. Once again, the illustrations are wonderful and help enhance the reading. I thought her language and writing was very clear throughout the text. I really like how Audrey Penn includes different parts of her stories into her other stories. For example, in this text Chester is sad because he doesn't want to move to a new home. The mother racoon ends up incorporating the kissing hand into this story to help Chester not feel so afraid. I really enjoy her stories because they are so realistic in terms of struggles that kids go through. Her stories are very relatable to little children. ( )

We meet Chester the Raccoon again.

This time, he has to move with his family because their tree is marked to be cut down. Change is always difficult, for the young and the not-so-young. Mother helps Chester through the move to the new tree they will live in. This is a nice addition to any Kindergarten to second grade class or school library. Just like the Franklin books, that help little ones learn the right way to behave and help little ones transition, Chester is turning into a baby-step coming-of-age series for young elementary aged kids.

I received an e-book version of this story from Net Galley. ( )

As with the other books in the Kissing Hand series, Penn handles a subject important to young children, and does so in such a gentle, optimistic way that readers can't help but feel comforted.

Chester and his family can no longer live in their tree. The tree has been marked for removal and Chester, his mother, and brother will have to move to a new tree in another part of the forest. Mrs. Raccoon tries to convince Chester that this will be an adventure, but Chester doesn't want an adventure...he wants his tree.

Mrs. Raccoon is always right, though, and Chester finds this time is no different. Sometimes an adventure is really the start of something even more wonderful. ( )
