The Lovereading4Kids comment
Little Hedgehog is about to start school and though he knows his mum is excited about that, his tummy is full of butterflies. Starting school can be a scary prospect for little children, and this cosy story will offer them lots of reassurance and also provide parents with a fun way of talking about what the experience involves. Little Hedgehog is very appealing with his school cap and satchel, and children will certainly be able to identify with him. There are useful supporting notes for parents too. ~ Andrea Reece
Storytime: Little Hedgehog's Big Day by Heidi Howarth
Will Little Hedgehog ever be big enough for Big School? Hedgehog's Big Day is a reassuring story that will help to build confidence. Big school is approaching for Hedgehog. He can't sleep, all he can think about is just how big, BIG SCHOOL could be! Will he ever be big enough? He asks Rabbit, Squirrel, Badger and finally his mum, but what will the best piece of advice be?
Part of the QED Storytime series, which includes The Extremely Greedy Dragon and What's the Time, Wilfred Wolf? this beautifully illustrated book introduces young children to the pleasures of reading and sharing stories, and includes supporting notes for parents and teachers.
Storytime has recently featured on CBeebies Bedtime Stories.
'This is the perfect vehicle for naturally addressing any issues, concerns or worries that young children may have about starting school. Little hedgehog is about to start 'big school but he is really worried that he is not quite big enough. This is a story about friendship and how we can all get by a bit better with a little help from our friends. Brilliant, bright, bold illustrations correlate to the text making it easier for emergent readers to find the words they need and to encourage prediction skills.' Early Years
