What Readers Are Saying...


"I read this book via Facetime to my 5-year-old Grandson. We both loved this book! I asked him what his favorite part was, and he said, 'The questions, Grandma.' I found out a few more things from his point of view. Love it and recommend it!"

"As a retired military member, my family and I are always making some kind of shift. Moving to different locations, etc. This helped my kids and family get a real conversation going around emotions so we don't ignore what's going on under the surface."

"It's always a little scary to move to a new place, but The Adventures of Henry the Hedgehog can really help little kids see it's okay to move to a new place, 'cause you'll make new friends. Also loved the footnotes, too."
