Reading Level: 4th – 5th Grade

Does it hurt to hold a hedgehog?

Find out the answer and spark kids’ natural curiosity about pets with this inquiry-based nonfiction book. Hedgehogs take stop, drop, and roll (into a ball) to the next level. Their prickly quills are a good defense against predators, but as pets, their adorable faces steal the show!

Nine kid-friendly Q&As teach readers about life with a pet hedgehog, including handling techniques, hedgehogs’ skittish nature, and their ability to run for miles on a hedgehog wheel. Engaging questions draw in kids while research-based answers satisfy their curiosity. Simple infographics support visual learning.

A Stay Curious! feature encourages kids to keep asking questions and models media literacy skills. Includes table of contents, glossary, and index. Perfect for curious kids in early elementary grades.
