Help Your Child Navigate Big Emotions & Thrive

The Adventures of Henry the Hedgehog is an award-winning, fully illustrated picture book series that helps parents, caregivers, teachers, and counselors teach children how to understand, process, and manage their emotions effectively.








Promote your child's lifelong well-being with emotional intelligence

Is your child acting out in anger, isolating themselves from others, having difficulty forming relationships, or struggling to keep their grades up? You're not alone.

Little people have BIG emotions. Many children do not have the ability to understand and regulate them (aka Emotional Intelligence). This can lead to behavioral challenges that continue into adolescence and beyond.

An emotionally intelligent child is able to cope with life’s challenges, including bullying, loss of a loved one, family separation, changing schools—even misplacing a toy.

With The Adventures of Henry the Hedgehog book series, you'll develop your child’s self-awareness, empathy, and coping skills early on, laying the foundation for their lifelong, positive well-being.


Hi! I'm Henry the Hedgehog.

I love adventures, don’t you? My favorite activities include searching for huge red raspberries, swimming in the nearby watering hole, and hanging out with my friends: Patrick the Porcupine, Shelly the Skunk, Brock the Beaver, Roxy the Rabbit, and Olivia the Otter.

On my adventures, I feel many emotions, such as anger, sadness, fear, grief, and anxiety. But, by working with my friends, I learn how to solve a problem and handle my emotions in a better way. You can do it, too! 

It’s okay to talk about your feelings, and that’s what we’re going to do. I’ll give your parents, teachers, and counselors the tools they need to have important conversations with you about your feelings. 

Come along with me on my adventures. Let’s go!
