The Kissing Hand: A Pocket Full of Kisses

Written by Audrey Penn and Illustrated by Barbara L. Gibson

Chester Raccoon has a baby brother – and the baby is a bit more than Chester had bargained for. "Please can we give him back?" he begs Mrs. Raccoon, to no avail. The last straw is when Chester sees his mother give his baby brother a kissing hand – his kissing hand, Chester thinks. His mother assuages his fears with her own special brand of wisdom, finding just the right way to let Chester know that he is deeply loved.
