A perfect first day of school book! Especially for students entering kindergarten, The Kissing Hand will help make them feel safe and secure on the first day of school. Students are scared and miss their families those first few weeks. The Kissing Hand would be a good reminder to them that even know they are not with their families while at school, their family is always with them. The book also provides beautiful illustrations that bring the reader into the story. Overall, a very sweet and loving story.
