Bunny is looking forward to a cozy fall and winter with Hedgehog. But Hedgehog says he will start hibernating when the first leaf falls. Bunny is worried. He cannot go that long without seeing his friend! He comes up with a clever plan: he is simply going to hide the falling leaves, and the arrival of fall.... A merry and moving story about friendship.
This is an adorably illustrated children's book about Bunny and Hedgehog's friendship. One night while together Hedgehog mentions that in the Fall and Winter he hibernates and Bunny is saddened by that thought. Who will he play with while his best friend is asleep?
Bunny decides that he will make it seem like Fall has not arrived yet so that he has more time with his friend and the book follows him as he attempts this very large task.
The story of this book is both cute and informative for young readers, they learn about animals, hibernation, and the seasons as well. The images are vibrant and cheerful, and the colors are everything Fall - oranges, yellows, reds, and browns and make me all the more excited for Fall to actually get here.
This was a very fun book about friendship and doing anything you can to keep your friend around. I really enjoyed it and I think kids and families will too.
