Chester, a young raccoon would rather stay at home than go to school. For any child who confronts a difficult situation and for the child who needs reassurance, this wonderful story is a delight to share. Mrs. Raccoon tells her son that she knows a wonderful secret that will make his nights at school seem as warm and cosy as his days at home. She kisses Chester's palm; he feels the kiss rush from his hand to his heart, and she tells him to press his hand to his cheek whenever he gets lonely. This way, the kiss will jump to his face and fill him with toasty warm thoughts. Ages 3-8.
