The Kissing Hand

Age Level: Ages 0–5, Ages 5-8
By Developer: Oceanhouse Media

The whole idea of school is pretty intimidating to Chester the racoon. He would much rather stay nestled at home with his mother, and play with his friends and toys. But, Chester's mother has a very old secret, called the kissing hand that she says will help him.

The Kissing Hand is a heartwarming story about overcoming fears, especially when confronted by starting a new school. There is a delightful solution for this, and similar situations a child may be confronted with. I think that both children and parents will find this a helpful and a delightful book with a touching story.

The book allows for a read to me, read it myself and auto-play version. As the book is read the words are highlighted. In addition, when one taps on an object on a page they will hear the name and see it written. You also have the option to record your own voice. This app is perfect for reading readiness as well as learning new vocabulary.

Requires iOS 5.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
