“Horrace and Hattie are the very best of friends and they love to explore the woodlands together. Join them in discovering the wonder of the woods.”
It’s not hard to fall in love with Horrace and Hattie. The Hedgehugs stories, published by Maverick Children's Books, are adorable and well complimented by the super cute illustrations. Steve Wilson and Lucy Tapper, the creators of the Hedgehugs series, are a great team that have brought a little bit of magic to these characters, making each book an absolute pleasure to read.
Exploring the Woodland
In this latest release, Woodland Hedgehugs Activity Book, our two spiky friends take us on an adventure through their woodland home. This is the perfect activity book for those that can get out for lovely strolls through their local woods, forest or park. But don’t worry, if you’re not able to get to these places with ease there is a suggestion of making a sensory box that you can keep at home to use, and there’s lots of craft activities and puzzles that are ideal for the home too.
This is definitely a book that you will want to enjoy as a family. Although the age range is 5 – 8, older and younger siblings, and of course parents, will enjoy getting involved in the adventure too. It’s an activity book that you can come back to again and again, as there will always be something new to find, including Sid the snail who is hiding on every page! It’s also a great book to take on holiday, to see what you discover in different places.
Horrace and Hattie suggest different games to play and challenges to complete, like hide and seek, balancing on a log and building a den. There’s also a scavenger hunt to keep your little ones busy! All through the book little facts creep in so it’s a brilliant and subtle way of learning about nature. Children will learn about the woodlands and the creatures that live there through sensory play.
Woodland Hedgehugs has been a big hit in the Boolino office and we would highly recommend this, especially if you are planning on getting out and about during the half term holidays!
We would love to see pictures of what you’ve been making with Horrace and Hattie, so feel free to post them in the comments!
