One Christmas Wish
The baby mice desperately want to build snow mice for Christmas. Little Hedgehog invites Badger, Fox, Rabbit, and the mice over the day after the first flurries fall, and though the snow has mostly melted, they set off to search for any remnants. They collect some from nearby branches and discover a plethora of it up to Rocky Ridge. Once they gather as much as Little Hedgehog’s hat will hold, they begin to journey home. On their way, they offer some of their glistening flurries to decorate Grandpa Squirrel’s tree. They share kindly with the beavers and then use what remains to make a cold compress for Fox’s injured foot. As Christmas morning approaches, Little Hedgehog decides to create a special gift for the little mice who so generously gave up what they wanted most of all.
One Christmas Wish is an adorable tale about friendship, kindness, and community. It’s a sweet storyline and precious characters are sure to captivate young children’s interests. Little Hedgehog’s snow hat is featured on nearly every spread. With its velvety soft touch, this added feature will awaken children’s senses and seize their intrigue and attention. The appeal of this story is likely to be broad. Very young children, namely three- and four-year-olds, will treasure holiday readings from Grandma and Grandpa; while older youth will cherish reading it on their own.
