  • "The Kissing Hand" by Audrey Penn is another one for 2-6. A great book to help children with their emotions when they are going off to a center based program, especially when leaving mommy, etc. for the first time.
  • Discussed this at interagency meeting today, I was able to save in Excel file to share with the group. One of our vendors has a Raising the Reader grant thru First 5 and is going to buy some of these books!
  • I love children's books, thanks!
