Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Cheryl Williams Chang
This delightful, nonfiction book provides a young reader with interesting facts about the habitat and lifestyle of hedgehogs. One may not know that there are more than 15 kinds of hedgehogs around the world. Hedgehogs are curious animals that although nocturnal, lack good eyesight and rely upon their whiskers to navigate in the dark. Additionally a hedgehog makes snorting noises like a pig when it is hunting, which is where its name originates. One might be surprised to find out that a hedgehog can live as long as 12 years and a baby hedgehog is referred to as a hoglet. This book is the second in a series of six books about nocturnal animals. The easy reader is geared for kindergartners and first graders, although older students may find the text easy enough to read on their own, with little assistance. Each book in the "Nocturnal Animals" series includes a table of contents, a glossary, clear photographs, simple vocabulary, additional Internet sites pertinent to book material, and an index. This book will make a desirable addition in an elementary school. Specific classes pertinent to this book include science and geography. Reviewer: Cheryl Williams Chang
