"The Kissing Hand"

Today, I was reading Taylor the book called "The Kissing Hand." Its about a raccoon who doesn't want to go to his first day of school, because he is scared. His mother tells him in the book, that it will be ok. He will meet new friends and play with new toys. So, she tells him that she has a little secret. She says open up your hand and as he did she kissed the palm of his hand. This is a kissing hand she says. When ever you get scared or don't want to do something just press this hand to your heart, I will always be with you. The kiss will never go away, even when you wash you hands. As I was reading this part of the book, Taylor put her hand to my mouth and wanted me to kiss it. NO JOKE! I started crying. For one, I couldn't believe that she understood what I was telling her and two she wanted me to show her affection! It melted my heart!

Even at 18 months Ta is understanding affection and learning how to love. If you have a little one, get the book!
