Reviews - What do customers think about Un Beso en Mi Mano?
Sweet sharing in any language Jan 21, 2002
I agree with Publisher's Weekly in giving this Spanish translation of The Kissing Hand a 5 star review. Connecting with our children is a number one priority, and this story does just that. Young Chester leaves the comfort of his home for school, but brings along his mother's love in the form of a kiss that warms his heart and soul. Chester returns this love by placing a kiss in his mother's palm, allowing her the same comfort. Chester feels safe and secure carrying this bit of reality shared by raccoon parents and cubs.
