    The Kissing Hand

    What a precious story!! I purchased this to have for the little ones when they visit. I'm so glad I did. The message is so heartwarming. I was so excited after I read this book that I called my neice who is a school teacher (1st grade). She says she loves this book and at the beginning of each school year she reads the story to her students and the traces their hand on paper and sends it home with them to share with their parents. Isn't that sweet?

    A must have!

    Most kids are afraid to go to school on the first day. This is a PERFECT story to ease their nerves. You can read to you kids, they can read for them selves, or the book can read itself. If you tap on some items ( or raccoons!) it will say its name and how the word. A wonderfully written classic.

    Cute story.

    Liked the fact the app was interactive. Tapping an item on the page brought forward the word of the item. Tapped on the racoon in the picture the word racoon would appear.
    Story was a cute way of reminding a younger child you are still with them when they are away.
