When a great wind blows apart Little Hedgehog's nest, he snuggles into his vivid orange-and-red hat, scarf and mittens. Hedgehog, of One Snowy Night (2005), ventures into the storm to seek shelter with his friend Badger. As he journeys through the woods, he discovers, first, a family of field mice shivering in the long grass. Without hesitation, he gives them his hat. Soon he happens upon Otter and gives him his mittens. As the cold worsens, Hedgehog meets a deer and her shivering fawn. He doesn't hesitate to offer his scarf. When he finally reaches the welcoming hearth of Badger's house, he is but a prickly snowball. As we see the ultimate outcome of Hedgehog's actions, this sweet story becomes a testament to kindness. The bright woolens are of a tactile velvety flocking, and the art depicts the windswept and snow dotted landscape in deep greens, rich browns and gray-blue. Little Hedgehog's tender story is about true compassion and pure generosity, illustrating how goodness rarely goes unnoticed.

"The longer text in One Winter’s Day makes it ideal to read to older children but it is also simple enough for beginner readers to read. This would be a great story to include in a classroom theme about seasons. It could also be used to stimulate discussions on kindness and giving as Little Hedgehog’s friends repay his kindness by building him a new nest."

Little Hedgehog puts on his scarf, hat and mittens and sets off to go and stay with Badger.....but on the way he meets friends in more need and helps them by giving them his only remaining assets....... As the storm gets worse, Little Hedgehog does eventually make it to Badger's house........but he is still worried about his own home.
All is well that ends well, and his caring and sharing pays off as Little Hedgehog's kindness is suitably rewarded at the end of this super book!

On his way Hedgehog meets a family of mice, an otter and a baby deer, all shivering in the wind and snow.

But will Little Hedgehog make it through the storm to safety?'
Beautifully written, and illustrated, this delightfully atmospheric book has the further enhancement of the 'touch and feel' kind...the cosy hat, scarf and mittens are in attractive orange and red fuzzy felt type material!
Younger children love to find these on each turn of the page, and this anticipation helps to balance the slight worry of Little Hedgehog's plight!
Large paperback with 24 shiny high quality pages in the popular 2-page spread format.
Clear text, broken up into good sized chunks.

Little hedgehog eventually arrives at his friends house, and after he defrosts, he worries about his own house, which was blown away by the storm. His friend, Badger, says he will help him, but 'Surprise!' all the animals he helped, have built him a new cosy house, with the addition of the hat, scarf and gloves he lent them all!
This is a fantastic book - I highly recommend it! My nursery class loved it too!!!
