The baby mice have one Christmas wish: to build snow mice. But there just isn’t enough snow! So Little Hedgehog and his friends set off on a snow hunt. On the way home, the mice share their snow with others in need. Will there be enough left to make their wish come true?

Review by Stacey

One Christmas Wish tells the story of a family of baby mice getting excited when they see the first flutters of snow but they get all upset when there isn’t enough to make snow mice. Hedgehog has an idea to collect snow in his hat from places nearby and then bring it back for the mice so they can play but things don’t go according to plan.

The book is quite large and is filled with beautiful full-page illustrations that are festive and adorable to look at. Hedgehogs hat also has a velvety feel to it and is shown on every page so that children can rub their fingers over it and feel the material.

The plot is sweet, even if I did wonder why the animals, including the baby mice, couldn’t stay and play where there was a lot of snow rather than trying to take a small amount back home. I do love the message behind the book about helping and being kind to others.

This is a warm and inviting story for young children and is perfect for this time of year. I also love the surprise Hedgehog had for his friends at the end of the book to make them feel happy and loved.
