My children enjoy me reading The Kissing Hand to them and have fallen in love with its main character, a sweet raccoon named Chester.   I was excited to learn of two other books by the same author, Audrey Penn: The Kiss Good-bye and A Pocket Full of Kisses.  The Kiss Good-bye touches upon topic relevant to many families – moving.  Chester’s family is forced to move from their tree and Chester is not too happy about leaving all that is familiar.   His mother uses a sweet, patient tone with him which gently easing his fears.  Of course, in the end Chester finds that new places can bring new adventures.
