Fans of “The Kissing Hand” by Audrey Penn will recognize Chester, the raccoon cub who suffers from separation anxiety when it’s time to go to school. His mother kisses his palm and tells him that whenever he is feeling a little lonely and needs love from home, all he needs to do is press his hand to his cheek and know that Mommy loves him. My son had the same issues when he was young. I dreamed up this craft while he was away with his grandparents for five nights.
