A sturdy board book with a padded cover and embossed texture on the rain hat, boots, coat and umbrella within the illustrations provides extra sensory stimulation.
Little Hedgehog wakes up excited on a rainy day because he gets to try out his new raincoat, hat, boots, and umbrella. But, as soon as he steps outside and opens his new umbrella, he meets animals who need help and he goes to their rescue. At the end of the day, Little Hedgehog looks back on his rainy adventures over hot cocoa with his friends.
The shiny, touch-and-feel illustrations add extra fun for young children. The colorful, cute, but still vividly realistic images of characters adventuring in the rainy scenery will capture your little one’s imagination.
Cute onomatopoeias and dialogue make the read-aloud experience fun and soothing.
