The Kissing Hand
The faith talk questions are intended to be used with parents. In order to allay his fears his mother kisses the center of his paw and tells him that her kiss goes with him wherever he is and he can press it to his face to feel its warmth and love whenever he feels scared or alone. The setting is the woodlands and it is depicted as a non-threatening place for children. Children will easily identify with Chester and his fears of going away to night school. The repetition of the kissing of the hand coming from both the mother and from Chester allows the child to see that love is both received and given as both perspectives are represented.
