Favorite Back-to-School Book

I haven’t posted in awhile (in case you hadn’t noticed!). This baby will be here soon!! Because of all the craziness in my life right now, I’m just going to share ideas from the past the next little while. It’s not ideal, but I really want to get some posts/ideas up. Thanx for your understanding and patience with me! 🙂

This one is catered to the little ones leaving home for the first time. I’m hoping to do it for my daughter who is headed to preschool come September.

kids Fun With Books: The Kissing Hand

The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn


Chester Raccoon doesn’t want to go to school; he wants to stay home with his mother. She reassures him that everything will be fine… because she knows a secret! It’s the secret of the Kissing Hand. She then spreads his fingers and gives him a kiss right in the middle of his palm. He feels warm fuzzies go throughout his body. Whenever he feels lonely, he simply puts his hand to his cheek and will know that his mom loves him. Chester loves the Kissing Hand so much that he gives one to his mom in return!


Make your own kissing hand!

1. Put paint on your child’s hand and help them place their handprint on paper.

2. When dry, place a heart sticker in the middle. I didn’t have a heart sticker so I used an adhesive label and drew a heart on it.

3. You could have your child draw a picture of themself at school or with their family.

4. It’d be fun to do one of your hand, too!!

5. Be sure to really kiss your child’s hand that first morning when they leave for school!

Do you have any favorite back-t0-school books?
