Synopsis

A Pocketful of Kisses by Angela McAllister

When Digby goes to school for his second day he is beset with worries. He can't remember where to line up, or hang his coat, and he thinks that no one will play with him. To reassure him his mother blows a dozen kisses into his pocket telling him that if he feels worried he should take a kiss from his pocket and imagine his Mother with him. But Digby's day doesn't turn out as bad as he feared and the kisses don't get used in this charming and love-filled picture book.
