Separation Anxiety Book

A Kissing Hand for Chester Raccoon, Audrey Penn
I hadn't read The Kissing Hand (original title) or heard of the concept, but I like the idea and the heart-warming final illustration proving Chester's got it down.  This story is very short and simple, but introduces a practical strategy to deal with separation anxiety before events such as starting school or spending nights sleeping over away from parents.  That said, you could read it and introduce the idea yourself without having raccoons model it for you without losing a lot...
