Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1–When Little Hedgehog's nest blows away in a snowstorm, he retrieves his hat, scarf, and mittens and makes his way to his friend Badger's house. Along the way, he meets shivering field mice, an otter, and a doe and her fawn. He generously passes along his garments to these creatures and weathers the storm, safe and warm, with Badger. When the skies clear, the two of them make their way to the spot where Little Hedgehog's nest used to be and find a newly rebuilt, cozy house decorated with his winter accessories. The illustrations of the red and orange winter woolens have a feltlike fabric embedded in them to give readers a tactile experience. Macnaughton's soft and gentle full-page and inset pictures hold their own without this gimmick, complementing Butler's simple, sweet, and subtly didactic text.–Rachel G.

Review

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. (Picture book. 2-6) (Kirkus Reviews) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Very colorful and a nice story about sharing.

It has a moral in that if you do good things for others, in return, they will do good things for you.

It's a very sweet story of selflessness. My daughter loves the touch and feel of the hat, mittens and scarf. It's one of the ones I enjoy reading over and over.

There i was today, innocently walking past the picture book display when this adorable little hedgehog (an animal i have always wanted to adopt by the by, unfortunately the cats will not allow me to do so) unavoidably beckons to me from the cover of One Winter's Day (a touch and feel book) by M. Christina Butler and illustrated by Tina Macnaughton.

This is an incredibly cute book as the little hedgehog makes his way through the woods once the wind blows his nest away, playing good Samaritan to every poor little creature he meets. Of course their is a moral (well not really a moral~but it does show that being kind and sweet and selfless and all that will reward you with good karma~maybe saying that life is fair even when we all know that it really isn't) at the end and again i question the wisdom of over-adorableness of wild animals in tales for children but this one just wins over that "awe" factor in me (and tells that cynic to go sulk in the corner for a while).

What can i say?

My kids love to read. I am picky about storylines that stand out and share a good moral. Very nicely done.

This book is great. I had been borrowing it from a kindergarten teacher to share with the other kindergarten classes in the school. I read to 14 classes a month. I am a retired principal/librarian.
The book really emphasizes sharing and friends.
Any child up to age 7 would enjoy it especially the fuzzy pictures.

Format: Board book
I've read many books with my 14-month old nephew, and looked at many more for him to try. This was one of the most beautifully drawn books. The board book pages are durable, easy for him to turn, and interesting for him to feel (the hat, scarf, and mittens are made in a fuzzy texture). And most importantly - I like the kindness of the story and the cozy feel it evokes, so we'll be sure to read it many times!

These stories are so comforting, and cozy! Beautifully illustrated in artistry and story. Little Hedgehog is a lovely thing to behold; so sweet and unselfish, and it is wonderful that he has cozy, loving friends. We hope this Little Hedgehog's adventures continue to be written!
