The Kissing Hand: Book Companion

The Kissing Hand has always been one of my favorite books. Chester is a raccoon about to start Kindergarten for the first time. He’s very nervous until his mother teaches him the secret of the Kissing Hand.


I developed a book companion for preschool to second graders. This book is perfect for the beginning of the school year. This book companion is 88 pages long. Instead of my usually pictures, I’m trying to show you the contents via video this time!

Just to clarify, when you purchase you get a PDF download of all these items. You will then print/download them on your own. You can actually re-download the documents as many times as you need because they are stored on the TPT website under the ‘my purchases’ tab.

Note… I know all the pictures are mirrored. That’s just a feature of the program I was using and I even mention it in the video! Luckily you’re not really reading anything, I just showed the activities to give you an idea!

OK, tell me what you think? Did you like a video or do you still prefer a bunch of photos as a description instead?

Don’t forget to look for the raccoon beanie babies. For other ideas on those beanies check my latest post about them.

You can find my book companion on TpT.

You can find the book, The Kissing Hand,  on Amazon.

    It is definitely interesting to see your product based on how you would use the materials. It is one of my favorite books also.

    Loved the video…EXCEPT….everything was mirrored, so all the words read from right to left and showed distinct signs of a serious case of dyslexia. I don’t know why it came out that way, but thank you so much for the effort–I am very seriously considering the purchase of your activity set! Thanks!

    I LOVED the video! I feel like you were able to share so much more then you could have in print on the blog! You gave great suggestions that I might not even have thought of. Wonderful!

    I actually LOVED the video. I don’t know if it’s more work for you, but I definitely liked it. I can only imagine how much work was put into this – thanks!

    I loved the video and seeing how you use the materials you make with your students! Sometimes I get into a lull and can’t think of ways to use things, so the video was such a big help!! :)

    I loved the video! It’s so fun to hear everyone’s voices! We all “talk” so much that its nice to hear a voice with the words =) You did a great job!
