The Kissing Hand

Pray Me a Story Kit - Series 2


The Pray Me a Story series uses popular children’s books as a springboard for entering into imaginative prayer. Pray Me a Story is designed for use by catechists, religion teachers, parents, grandparents—anyone who prays with children of any age.
This kit includes the hardcover book The Kissing Hand and an 8-page booklet to guide the adult with step-by-step instructions on how to share and discuss the story. After hearing the story, the child is gently guided into the scene to meet Jesus and prayerfully speak to him as one friend speaks to another.

This is a story about a raccoon named Chester who is getting ready for his first day at school. He is afraid and wants to stay home with his mother. She shares a secret with Chester, which helps him remember her love for him. That love gives Chester the courage he needs to try something new. As children listen to the story, they think about ways they receive love and support from others.
