This picture book has the most lovely and appealing illustrations, as can be seen from the cover. I adored them!
The story begins with Hedgehog who loves her garden. Children will see how carefully she cares for it and will learn about the flowers that she grows. So far, so good, but…one day, the flowers are destroyed.
Hedgehog is very upset. She begins to accuse other animals, all of whom are adorably illustrated, of ruining her garden. From this, children may gently learn that it does not do to accuse others without evidence.
Next, Hedgehog does some investigating, finds out who the culprit is and they become friends. At the end of the story, you will see how the thief is literally transformed!
This book is further enhanced by a section that offers suggestions for adults to help children get the most from the story.
Thanks to NetGalley and Quarto for this enticing book.
