  1. We haven't had an author visit at our school in about five years. "The Kissing Hand" is one of my favorite books because it teaches children to be brave. As a teacher and parent it also reminds me how important it is for us to reassure our children how much we love them, and to encourage them at everything that they do. I use the book as a read aloud, and we talk about how important it is that we try our best at everything that we do. I tell them that at times we might feel scared or unsure whether we can do something, but there will always be people who love us and support us in the things that we do. Then I ask them, "Who do you think loves you?" I hope they respond by saying their parents, teachers, brothers, sisters, etc. I let children share, and tell them the importance of telling others they love them as well.
