The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn is my favorite back to school story for Kindergarten. Chester Raccoon is worried about going to school for the first time. His mom gives him a "kissing hand" so that her love will be with him all day at school. Click below to see my full unit & sampler in my store.
Here's a video of Audrey Penn reading the kissing hand. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
