A delightful storybook about hedgehogs, with a strong conservation message. Suitable for three- to 10-year-olds.
Spike the Hedgehog is an educational tale about a hedgehog who is trying to find his way in today’s world. It teaches children how (and why) to make space for hedgehogs in their gardens.
The hedgehog is currently on the UCN Red List of species facing extinction, so there is much work to be done for the nation’s favourite mammal.
This storybook is part of an animal series of children’s book and CD sets, told from the point of view of Mother Earth. The aim is to raise awareness among the young (aged three-10 years), and highlight the current threats our wildlife is facing from erosion of natural habitat, climate change and plastic pollution.
The books empower children in a positive way by reconnecting them with the natural world. Many different age-related stimuli have been added to the contents so that over time, as a child’s understanding and abilities grow, their engagement is maintained with a fun, interactive and rewarding experience.
Each storybook teaches children a fictional tale about a very real fact; a conservation message is woven into the tale to detail how valuable our wildlife is and what we can do to help it.
