The Kissing Hand
Now you can enjoy this lovely picture book "the Kissing Hand" in simplified Chinese.
Chester Raccoon doesn't want to go to school--he wants to stay home with his mother. She assures him that he'll love school--with its promise of new friends, new toys, and new books. Even better, she has a special secret that's been in the family for years--the Kissing Hand.
This secret, she tells him, will make school seem as cozy as home. She takes her son's hand, spreads his tiny fingers into a fan and kisses his palm--smack dab in the middle: "Chester felt his mother's kiss rush from his hand, up his arm, and into his heart." Whenever he feels lonely at school, all he has to do is press his hand to his cheek to feel the warmth of his mother's kiss. Chester is so pleased with his Kissing Hand that he--in a genuinely touching moment--gives his mom a Kissing Hand, too, to comfort her when he is away.
Audrey Penn's The Kissing Hand, is just the right
book for any child taking that fledgling plunge into preschool--or for
any youngster who is temporarily separated from home or loved ones. The
rough but endearing raccoon illustrations are as satisfying and
soothing for anxious children as the simple story.
