We’ll never be apart.

And feel that loving glow.

Wherever you may go.”

Chester is very anxious about attending Owl School (because racoons are nocturnal it will be night classes) and leaving his beloved mother's side at home. He bargains with her to be able to stay:
"Chester Raccoon was very sad.
He looked at his mommy and cried.
"I don't want to go to school," he said.
"I want to stay home by your side."
He tells her he will read his books, play with his friends and favourite toys and won't make very much noise. Mrs. Raccoon sees the anguish on in her little one's heart and on his face and right then and there she shares a wonderful secret that is sure to ease the pain of his separation anxiety from her.
She opens up the palm of Chester's hand and plants a kiss. Her kiss seems electrically charged and it travels from his tiny palm, up his arm and straight into his heart.
"With a Kissing Hand," said Chester's mom,
We'll never be apart."
"Just press your hand upon your cheek
And feel the loving glow.
It's Mommy saying, 'I love you,'
Wherever you may go."
You can see by now this sweet book is written in rhyme and is a perfect read aloud as you both snuggle together. It has language simple enough to be memorized and tucked in your little one's heart forever. This meaningful gesture and words can then be called forth when needed most... when mommy who is far away and unreachable. Her loving implanted kiss will be the perfect antidote for the overwhelming feelings of missing her.
