The Kissing Hand is one of those stories that comes to mind as one I want my children to know by the time they are grown. The original story dealt with young Chester's separation anxiety, and Mrs. Raccoon's unique and touching (literally!) way of reassuring her child. Since then, Penn has used Chester to teach children other life lessons, including the arrival of a new sibling, moving, bullying, and even death.

Now, A Color Game for Chester Raccoon, available in board book format, introduces children to primary colors. The rhyming text is much briefer than other Chester books, and complements simpler illustrations. Each new color stands out on the page, allowing for young children to easily interact with Chester and his friends as they discover all the colors found in their forest home.

Keep this one in the diaper bag for easy access during those times when you need not just a book, but one that will keep your child busy as he or she embarks on a color hunt through the pages.
