Hurry Home, Hedgehog! A Bilingual Book of Sounds

by Belle Yang

Published by Candlewick Press, 2015
24 pages
ISBN: 978𢠩63665982

Ages 13

A pair of board books offers rich vocabulary in English and Mandarin Chinese. Squirrel Round and Round describes the changing landscape and activities of its inhabitants as a squirrel travels through the seasons of the year. The squirrel observes blooming camellias, noisy cicadas, ripe persimmons, and more as winter turns to spring then to summer and fall. The first frost and fresh tracks in the snow bring the squirrel back to winter. In Hurry Home Hedgehog, a young hedgehog hurries to make it home before a storm. 揚inecones fall / Plunk, plunk and 揗ice race for their holes / Skitter, skatter alerting Hedgehog to the coming storm. 揅rack! Baroom! / The sky sounds angry and 揜ain falls hard like soybeans / Ping ping, pang pang before hedgehog makes it safely home to his warm den and his Mama. Attractive illustrations painted in impressionistic colors are simple yet detailed.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
