I'm a retired elementary educator and one of my passions is children's literature. The Kissing Hand is such a touching story of the difficulties faced with parent/child separation and how this mother eased the fears of her son Chester. Now that I am a grandmother, sharing great literature with actual book characters is a wonder way to make the story come alive! Chester is the perfect size and such a loveable character. I will definitely be ordering other storybook characters in the near future!
so cute. Kids love it!
