As Hedgie and his mommy walk home through the autumn leaves, Hedgie is full of questions. Everything is changing around him—what if he changes too? Would his mommy love him more if he were different? Will her love for him ever change? But wise and patient Mommy knows just how to reassure her little hedgehog that, however he might change, her love will always stay the same.
Heartwarming and tender, with charming artwork from Migy Blanco, this is the perfect gift to share and read aloud.
Age Range: 3-7 years
"Many books have similar titles and highlight the parent-child bond, but this gently flowing rhyme by Stickley elicits new warm, snuggly feelings. Lush, boldly colored illustrations capture Mommy hedgehog and her son, Hedgie, as they amble through the fall woods...The cartoon landscape they dwell in is a benign one, round-lobed oak leaves, flowing water, and other organic shapes exuding comfort. Loving thoughts, especially appropriate for bedtime."
