Chester the raccoon is very nervous about going to school for the very first time. The mother raccoon tells Chester of a story of how a kiss in the palm of his hand will follow him wherever he will go and be with him always.

The illustrator of this book uses markers on cardstock to bring out rich colors and textures. This creates the feeling of looking at a photograph and not a picture that has been done in marker. The pages have a variety of setups. Some of the pages have the text in the middle of the page with pictures above and below it. The most unique layout is of a two page fold divided into thirds. The first third is bookmark sized that has animals that are watching the main character. The next part is three fourths of the spread but half of it is text and the rest is a picture of the main character.
