Avant la rentrée scolaire, une maman raton laveur rassure son petit en lui disant qu'à l'école, il s'amusera, rencontrera de nouveaux amis et apprendra un tas de choses. Puis elle dépose un bisou secret au creux de sa main, lui rappelant tendrement qu'il sera toujours à sa portée au cas où il s'ennuierait.
School is starting in the forest, but Chester Raccoon does not want to go. To help ease Chester's fears, Mrs. Raccoon shares a family secret called the Kissing Hand to give him the reassurance of her love any time his world feels a little scary. Since its first publication in 1993, this heartwarming book has become a children's classic that has touched the lives of millions of children and their parents, especially at times of separation, whether starting school, entering daycare, or goingto camp. It is widely used by kindergarten teachers on the first day of school. Stickers at the back will help children and their parents keep their Kissing Hand alive. For the 20th anniversary of this children's classic, the book is shrink-wrapped with a set of heart-in-palm gloves, along with a special letter from the author to her readers.
