Ouch! by Ragnhild Scamell

I am reading this book with my Pre-K group this week for our apple theme.  I used it with the toddlers today (but really shortened the text) and they enjoyed it too!
 
Ouch!  by Ragnhild Scamell. 
 
Just as hedgehog is getting into her nest for a long nap, a falling apples gets stuck on her spiny back. 
 
Meet Hedgehog:
 
Every time a friend tries to help, something else gets stuck
(acorn, pear, leaf, paper, waterlilly, black berries):
 
Poor Hedgehog!:


Good thing Goat is hungry for some lunch!  Problem solved:
 
Finally Hedgehog can take her nap in her blanket of leaves:
 
Hedgehog's blanket:

  1. I absolutely adore your leaf blanket. In fact, I'd like to snuggle under one myself!

    1. I used 3 different shades of vibrant oranges - holding it up in the light muted the colors a bit, but it still makes me all warm and cozy for NY fall. =)

    1. If you find a better way to get the flannel pieces to stick to the hedgehog, let me know! I used masking tape and it worked just fine, but the goat left pieces of tape behind on the hedgehog which may have ruined the illustion a little bit LOL

  4. I have a hedgehog dog toy that I used and just stuck 3 strips of the hook side of Velcro onto it so that everything sticks - I would not do this with a puppet, but my dog toy is fair game:)
