Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2–Normally, Little Hedgehog would be asleep at Christmas, but the cold wind wakes him up. From out of the blue (literally) comes a gift from Father Christmas–a red woolly hat, just the perfect size, except for his pesky quills. When the hat is all stretched out, Little Hedgehog rewraps it and leaves it on Rabbit's doorstep. He in turn gives it to Badger, who then passes it on to Fox. Heading out one evening, he comes across poor Little Hedgehog, unconscious in the snow. Fox wraps him in the hat and takes him to Rabbit's house, where Rabbit and Badger are having dinner. Little Hedgehog wakes up long enough to admire his nice warm blanket, and the other animals decide that the hat is perfect for him. Macnaughton's illustrations are simple and charming and the red hat has a touchable velvety texture, making this a good story for both intimate and large settings.–M. A.

My two year old checked this book out at our local library and he loved it (also loved One Rainy Day). So I bought it for him, and decided to get the boardbook instead of the hardcover. But, the stories are not the same, since the boardbook leaves some details out of the story. The hardcover story is much better.

We have had this book since my daughter was 18 months. Now at three years old, she still loves it as she did the first time I read it to her. It is often one of her preferred bedtime stories- throughout the year, not just at Christmas. The tactile nature of the book and the vivid colors engage her completely. We now have almost all of M. Christina Butler's books. All are wonderful, but this one has such a charm the others cannot match. I highly recommend all of her books, particularly if your child enjoys one of her titles. I am glad we discovered this author and her delightful books.

I loved M. Christina Butler's Book "One Winter's Day" and this is her follow up called "One Snowy Night" It's another charming winter tale that your child is sure to love. It's a touch and feel book, which has a nice, tactile feel. That along with great illustrations by Tina Macnaughton will leave you "warm and fuzzy" If your child loves hedgehogs, be sure to also check out the Gilbert the hedgehog books by Diane Degroat.

I bought this book for my two year old. He enjoys the richly colored pictures and woodland animals. The story shows the spirit of Christmas through giving and friendship which makes it a hit with me, too.

In One Snowy Night, Little Hedgehog wakes up on Christmas morning to find that Father Christmas has left him a warm, red, wooly hat which makes him very happy because he is very very cold. Unfortunately, the prickles on his head make it difficult for this hat to fit just right.

Hedgehog give the hat to his friend rabbit, but the hat is too big. Rabbit gives it to badger, and it fits great but he can't hear, so he gives it to fox who puts two holes in it for his ears. In his travels Fox finds a baby hedgehog shivering in the snow, and puts the baby inside of the red hat, using it as a blanket to keep it warm and it soon falls fast asleep.

One Snowy Night is a "touch and feel book" that I fell in love with. Vivid colors and the fuzzy feel of the red hat, in addition, to the wonderful story of sharing and caring, make this book a winner all around.

I purchased all I could find of this author and illustrator. The stories are about kindness and friendship and helpfulness in a world where our little ones learn too soon that people and situations are not always kind or friendly or helpful. Each book has created such an atmosphere of warm snuggly places for my granddaughters and for myself, some of the illustrations have evoked deep, old memories of the woods and fields I played in as a child. The word pathos comes to mind. Bittersweet. Sweet memories but a slight bitter awareness that it's long ago and far away.
I love these books!

LOVE this book - Read it to my son since he was a baby & now he's 7 & we still love to read it together. After finding this one on Amazon that has the fuzzy feel I had to purchase it - the one I read to my son from the library did not have fuzz. This one is even better! My boy loves to read it now to his baby sister who loves to feel the fuzz as he's reading.
