29. The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn

Every mother should read this book to her child right before he leaves for his first day of school. It is so sweet and has such beautiful illustrations. This picture is a favorite. Chester does not want to go to school. He prefers to stay at home and play with his mother and keep her company. She tells him all the fun things that he will do at school and the friends he will make. Finally she gives him a kiss in his palm so he can take her love with him to school. Aaaaaaah. I just loved this book. Rating: 5


  1. sounds like a sweet book to read to my children. Thanks for the review.

  2. I read a review of this on somebody else's blog and thought it sounded so sweet. I'm glad to see you thought so, too.

  3. That sounds so precious! Another one that makes me warm and fuzzy is called "Hug" by Jez Alborough. (I think I spelled that right ...)
