Who Has a Pet Hedgehog? - by Jan Heng
Based on the real daily life of Odin the author's hedgehog, Who Has A Pet Hedgehog? describes how a little girl and her multicultural family take care of their pet. Inspired by the special bond between the author's daughter Victoria and Odin, the story introduces the basics of hedgehog care---housing, diet, health, handling, and bonding. By following a day in their household caring for Odin and how the family occasionally enjoys decorating Odin's enclosure for special occasions, so he can be part of festivities, Who Has A Pet Hedgehog? provides children insight into what it is like having a hedgehog as a pet before getting one, or simply have fun imagining what it is like to have one.
My son and I really liked this story. It shows all the basic care needs of owning a hedgehog so a child can really get a picture of what it would be like if they had one. I love books like these because I feel like kids need another way of being told what pets are like other than from the parents. If anyone is thinking about getting a hedgehog with young children, I’d recommend this book first. I bet you can guess what kind of pet my son really wants now. Luckily we do have a pet store nearby that sells hedgehogs that we can go visit.
