Hedgehog Storytime

Hedgehog Storytime (Orig. 8/2020)

This storytime was created to be a virtual storytime, which is why there is no craft. You can watch this storytime here.

Opening Song:

As usual, we begin with our opening songs:
"The More We Get Together" using baby signs
"Shake My Sillies Out" by Raffi

Flannel Board:

Four Little Hedgehogs (Found on Flannel Board Fun)
Four little hedgehogs, cute as can be
One rolled away and then there were three.
Three little hedgehogs—what could they do?
One found some bugs to eat and then there were two.
Two little hedgehogs, too tired to have fun
One dozed off, and that left one.
One lonely hedgehog wiggling his snout, “Where are my friends?” he began to pout.
(bring other hedgehogs back)
"Here we are, here we are, and don’t you worry. Let’s go outside hurry, hurry, hurry"

"Porcupining: A Prickly Love Story" by Lisa Wheeler
Don't worry- we know the difference between a hedgehog and a porcupine! In this story, (spoiler alert!) the porcupine falls in love with a hedgehog.

For our preschool storytime, we typically only read one book. Here are some other cute hedgehog options:
