A Pocket Full Of Kisses

Summary:

It was Okay for a while, but now Chester doesn't like having a little brother anymore. Every time he thinks Mother Raccoon has given him just a little extra love, she goes and gives it to his brother Ronny, too. Finally, with a story about the stars, Chester begins to understand about a Mother's love.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

Raccoon protagonists make this a story that's easy to swallow for "big brothers" who want to make sure that they are loved, too. It offers parents a means to physically demonstrate their unconditional love in a way that is precious to a child.

Content Awareness Factors:

None.

This is a story that helps 'big brothers' understand that parents can never run out of love for their children.
