Book Reviews: How to Help a Hedgehog and Protect a Polar Bear

How to Help a Hedgehog and Protect a Polar Bear is a beautiful book (that I was sent for free in exchange for a fair review). As the name suggests, it’s aimed at people who want to make the world a better place.

The book combines gorgeous pictures with practical nature-saving tips, world habitat guides and animal info.

It’s a great book to dip into, but reading it cover to cover will turn you into a well educated nature lover.

While ostensibly aimed at children of primary age, I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

The information is fresh and informed enough to make it a satisfying adult read. At 64 pages, there’s a lot to take in too.

It could be a great gift for a nature loving adult who struggles with reading. I found it ideal for brain fog days, so it could also be handy if you have a chronic condition and are after reading material.

The book is written by Dr Jess French (zoologist, naturalist, entomologist, vet and presenter of Minibeast Adventure with Jess on CBeebies) and illustrated by Angela Keoghan, (award-winning illustrator of books including Inspector Brunswick and the Case of the Missing Eyebrow.) I was impressed by the diversity of the illustrations, and love Angela’s clean style.

Jess and Angela are clearly a great team and I hope to see them do more together in the future.

If you’re looking for a great introduction to sustainability, need ideas for helping nature as a family, or simply want a lovely picture book, How to Help a Hedgehog and Protect a Polar Bear is well worth buying. And at £12.99, it’s a reasonable price (for saving the planet).
