The Day Hedgehog Almost Blew Away
Liesl van der Hoven
Children's author and meditation teacher
Although Meerkat and Hedgehog are very different from each other, they are best friends. In this story, they go on a little adventure together that demonstrates Hedgehog's daring spirit and Meerkat's kind and more patient nature. In spite of the trouble they almost get into, they remain loyal best friends. This can be a great story to start a conversation about diversity - both in physical appearance and character - with children.
