One Winter’s Day
by Christina Butler, illustrated by Tina Macnaughton
Warm up with this cozy,cold story. This picture book is all about empathy. Sharing someone else’s feelings and helping in their need is a winter break we all need. This very nice hedgehog continues on through the snow and blusterous day sharing all the last warmth from his mittens to scarf while going to visit a friend. The friends along the way receive the comfort and surprise the little hedgehog in the end for his special kindness. This is a family favorite and it is even better that it was shared by a friend. A charming story that celebrates friendship and caring for others.
