This Blonde’s Review:
These books are Great if you have children. The Kissing Hand was a wonderful book for my son’s first day of preschool a few years ago. Of course when I saw I could get a copy for review I wanted to read it to my daughter for school as well as see what my son thinks of it now. They loved it and wanted me to read it again. It was a great book to help children through first days of school or visits away from home.
A Pocket Full of Kisses is the second book and it was new to all of us. This book deals with the addition of a new family member. Chester is jealous of his baby brother and worries his mother won’t love him as much as she did. This book was a wonderful way to show kids that you can love them all just as much.
These stories are short, adorable, and my children loved them. They enjoyed looking at he pictures and wanted to have their own kissing hands after they read them. If you have children I would definitely recommend these books for you.
