Overview: It's time for bed & Little Porcupine wants Papa Porcupine to tell him some stories. There are 3 stories in this book - "How the Big Porcupine Got His Spines," "Big Porcupine's Picnic," and "How the Big Porcupine Fooled the Moon." Papa Porcupine tells the first & third stories to Little Porcupine & Little Porcupine tells the second one to Papa.
Mommy Bookworm's Thoughts: This book is ADORABLE!!! I love all kinds of animals & the illustrations in this book are amazing to me. They make me want to just take the porcupines right out of the book & cuddle with them - except for when it mentions how they give a "big scratchy hug" or a "big ouchy hug." The "Big Porcupine" is the sun & although the stories are obviously fiction, I love them because the porcupines are trying to relate nature to themselves. I love all the stories, but particularly like the second one because Little Porcupine talks about how he wasn't invited to a party, but how he would invite everyone to a party if he has one, and how Big Porcupine includes everyone in his parties (which are sunsets). I think it has a great message of including everyone. All the stories have great messages about nature.
Dahlia Bookworm's Thoughts (11 years old): I thought the book was cute because the porcupine wanted to have story time before bed. I like the part where the little porcupine told the story of the sun's picnic. I liked the pictures & colors. I can read it by myself easily & would recommend it to kids my age and a little younger, but not too much younger.
Daisy Bookworm's Thoughts (7 years old): I like the second and third stories because they were funny. I really like the pictures and colors. I would need some help reading it. I think other kids my age would like it. I also think the author wrote the book just for fun. I really like the book because it is interesting.
