If there’s just one thing I needed to teach Shaarav it would be sharing. And I found “One Snowy Night” to be the perfect book to teach Shaarav values of caring, sharing and friendship. This gorgeous wintry tale tells a beautiful story of sharing and makes for a wonderful bedtime story and otherwise too.
One Snowy Night
What’s the story?
“One Snowy Night” is a wonderful and tender touch-and-feel story of adorable little hedgehog and the gift that keeps on giving. On waking up from hibernation, the hedgehog finds himself amidst harsh winter winds that make him shiver in cold. Suddenly, falling from the sky he receives a parcel as a gift with his name on it which happens to be a red woolly bobble hat. But unfortunately, with all the prickles on his back he’s unable to wear it even after stretching it far too big. He finds it too big for him now and decides to pass it on to his friend rabbit who passes it on to the badger who in in turn gives it to the fox. In the whole series of passing and getting passed on it eventually finds its way back to the hedgehog.
What did we like about it?
What we like about this sweet story book “One Snowy Night” is that it has many instances of the blessings of friendship. It is perfect to teach young kids about love and caring. We also liked the fact that our version had a fuzzy woolly red hat to be touched and felt on almost every page which enhances the tenderness of this magical story making for a fun tactile experience for Shaarav. Another added advantage of this book is its gorgeous and cute illustrations making it an enjoyable read aloud story.
