In this book… Snow is on the way, and Hedgie is rambling around the farm one last time before his long winter sleep. But when he hears all the other animals talk about the wonders of winter that he misses every year, Hedgie decides he doesn’t want to miss a moment.
But hedgehogs hibernate for a reason, and winter is hard on poor Hedgie!
I love every single one of Jan Brett’s books, and this newest one does not disappoint.
Recommended for: ages 3-7, but you can also use her beautiful lavish border illustrations to teach older kids about foreshadowing as a literary device.
Remember, a really excellent picture book like this one is great for all ages.
