Back of Book:
Snow is on the way, and as Hedgie trundles around the farm all his friends tell him of the winter-time fun he will miss as he hibernates–Icicles decorating the chicken coop! Lisa making snowmen! The pond turned to slippery ice! It sounds so amazing, Hedgie decides to stay awake instead of going to his burrow. But then a snowstorm starts. Luckily, Lisa finds him and brings him inside so Hedgie gets to see the wonders of winter from inside the cozy house.
Jan Brett has written another stunning picture book about the simple beauty of winter. She used her famous hedgehog Hedgie as the main character of her newest tale. The text is poetic and written with beautiful figurative language. I love that all the animals from the barnyard are incorporated in the text. The illustrations are the same colorful and detailed images that make Jan Brett’s stories so unique. I love that readers get a sneak peek of the story through the illustrations on the side panels. This is a perfect addition to any winter unit.
