This week’s children’s book is all about How to Help a Hedgehog and Protect a Polar Bear by
by Dr Jess French and Angela Keoghan. It was published by Nosy Crow with National Trust and the book can be purchased on Amazon.
Learn how you can save endangered animals and make the world a better place, too!
From beetles and butterflies, to puffins and polar bears, animals and habitats all over the world need our protection. In this beautifully illustrated book, children (and adults!) can learn about thirteen different habitats – gardens, hedgerows, heathlands, woodlands, highlands, wetlands, the coastline, freshwater, oceans, savannahs, jungles and mountains – and simple everyday ways we can protect them.
Find out how to help hedgehogs in your own back garden or spread the word about endangered animals further from home, as you discover all the little things you can do to make a big difference. Including 70 everyday ways you can save our planet!
We love to get outdoors and go for an adventure and this is always a great chance for us to talk to Erin about the things we see and places we go. Something we discuss a lot is what kinds of animals we might see in different places and sometimes, what we must do to make sure we don’t harm anything while we’re there. How to Help a Hedgehog and Protect a Polar Bear is such a great book for going over lots of different kinds of settings and discussing these things.
The book is really well laid out, with a very clear contents page at the beginning. This is such a good idea if you’re maybe going on a specific day out and you want to read up on what you can do to help protect the wildlife in that area. Some examples of places covered are gardens, woodlands, coastlines, wetlands and further afield, jungles!
What I love about this book is how visual it is. The big illustrations are beautiful and make it easy for children to see things they might recognise and also to pick out things they might not know about. Mixed in with the illustrations are snippets of text, where you can learn about that surrounding area.
Each area also has a double page spread where you can find out about species you might find there and how you can help. For example, in the garden you can learn about planting native flowers, helping hedgehogs and some butterflies you might find in your garden. Here, there are measurements given for the creatures which is super fun if you get out a ruler or tape measure and see how big they would actually be.
How to Help a Hedgehog and Protect a Polar Bear is such a wonderful book for both children and adults to learn more about how we can protect the world around us and to look after our wonderful wildlife.
