PreS-Gr 1—Santa has a terrible cold and asks Little Hedgehog from One Snowy Night (Good Books, 2004) to deliver some presents for him. Putting on his toasty red hat, Little Hedgehog is on his way. After delivering to the Mouse family, he rushes down a hill a bit too fast and crashes into a snowdrift with a BUMP! He comes up with the brilliant idea of using his red hat to gather the scattered presents; luckily, his friends are on hand to help out when the hat unravels and dumps presents everywhere. The warm Christmas feeling is brought to a close when Little Hedgehog discovers a gift in his home, a brand-new hat and a "Thank You" note from Santa. Macnaughton's illustrations are charming and the velvety feel of the red hat is perfect for young readers who enjoy a bit of a tactile experience. A fun selection.—Diane Olivo-Posner, Los Angeles Public Library
