Pockets of Kisses


A Pocket Full of Kisses
This book is a tender sequel to the bestseller and children's classic
The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn.

Chester Raccoon is worried that his mother does not have enough love for both him and his new baby brother.

This review is from http://www.barnesandnoble.com/.
I bought this book for my son when we knew we were expecting another child. We read it so much and we practice pockets full of kisses
every night before he goes to bed as well as when he goes away to school.
I love this book and would recommend it to anyone with children!

Teachers have traditionally read The Kissing Hand  on the first day of school.  This is an especially good book for kindergarten children AND their parents.  Heart stickers on the kids' hands remind them of their parents' love even when they are separated.

Then later, A Pocket Full of Kisses could be read at an open house or a parent visit to reinforce the sentiment of the "kissing hand".

The Dots on Chocolate Library Pockets would be perfect for the suggestion submitted by Katryce Lanspa from Carpentersville, IL.
(Thanks, Katryce....Your pockets are on the way!.)

Every year I read the story A Pocket Full of Kisses to my class. I send a letter home to the parents explaining the book and then ask them to fill the "pocket" with their own kisses...pictures or little notes. Some moms get so creative and the kids keep them in their desks all year.

I love the dots on chocolate!
That's how I decorate my room!
Love them!

Dots on Chocolate heart stickers and library pockets 
 are perfect for the next idea.

First, Kate made bookmarks from strips of tag paper using the new
DOC heart stickers.
Then, she used a DOC library pocket with her name on it
to store the bookmarks.
Now, she can give the hearts away as kissing hands to any one
who might need a "little extra care" or some love.

Your mom can always use a little love from your pocket!
