Little Hedgehog, that adorable erinaceus hero whose adventures began in One Snowy Night, returns in this second touch-and-feel picture-book devoted to his doings. When a particularly strong wind destroys his nest one winter's day, he bundles up and sets off for Badger's house, where he hopes to find shelter. Meeting a variety of very cold creatures on his way - a family of mice whose home has also been destroyed by the high winds, an otter with freezing hands, a shivering fawn - he sacrifices all of his warm wrappings to help them out. After a cozy night at Badger's, he returns to the site of his former nest to discover... a wonderful surprise!

With a heartwarming story in which a series of good deeds are rewarded in kind, cute-as-a-button illustrations, and a velvety hat, scarf and mittens, all of which can be touched and felt by the young child, One Winter's Day offers an entertaining and interactive reading experience. Although I didn't enjoy it quite as much as its predecessor, it was still solidly engaging, and more than enough to convince me to continue on the the next Little Hedgehog adventure, One Rainy Day. After all, these books feature a cuddly hedgehog, so how bad could they be? ( )

Review: This book is a good example of fantasy because all the animals are talking to eachother. This is the story of a little hedgehog who's house blows away and he heads off to his friend badgers house. On his way he is going through this storm and hedgehog runs into more animal friends who need help keeping warm. Hegdehog is slowly giving away all that is keeping him warm to all his friends and when he finally reaches badgers house he too has a gift from all his friends. ( )

This book is a good example of fantasy because it takes place during a realistic time and a realistic setting of the woods, but then the main characters are animals that talk and wear hats, scarfs and mittens.
