On a train ride in Wheaton, Maryland, author Audrey Penn witnessed a ritual in which a mother raccoon placed its nose on a baby raccoon's paw, and then the baby raccoon placed its paw on its own face. The park ranger said that the purpose of the ritual was to transfer scent from the mother to the baby so that the baby could recall the mother's scent by bringing its paw to its face. Penn wrote The Kissing Hand based on the raccoons' ritual, followed by 5 sequels.
the National Education Association listed the The Kissing Hand as one of its "Teachers' Top 100 Books for Children. It was one of the "Top 100 Picture Books" of all time in a 2012 poll by School Library Journal. The American Library Association recommended the book after the September 11 attacks of 2001. In 2004, the United States Army purchased 14,000 copies of the book for soldiers stationed abroad to read on video and transmit the video to their families at home.
