Review: The Kissing Hand (Chester the Raccoon #1)

User Review  - Rashanda Ravenel - Goodreads

I really enjoyed that this book incorporated night creatures/nocturnal life. The moon was very bright and beautiful, shining its light on the owl, raccoon and other night creatures. This story would be great for making children feel better about leaving loved ones to go to school. Read full review
