The Adventures of Henry the Hedgehog: The Watering Hole is an adorable story about learning to love and accept yourself, no matter what other people say or think! Bullies are never fun, and it's never nice to be bullied. It can be very easy to take to heart what mean people say, even if you know it's not true. Confronting these people can be scary, but this book teaches you the value of standing up to yourself and not letting others control your self-worth!

Henry, this books main character helps Shelly the skunk, who is being picked on by Olivia, an otter. One of the many important lessons taught is to live yourself, and be yourself.
Although Henry is there for Shelly, and gives her support and advice, it is when Shelly stands up for herself that Olivia understands the impact of her comments.
The books is full of fun animal facts and also questions for the reader. Has anyone been mean to you? Is there anything about yourself that you don’t like? Children who read this will come away understanding why they should not call others names, or stand by if it happens to someone else.
There is even a page, at the end, to help parents and teachers facilitate discussion around the key concepts and ideas.

We loved this book!! My son who is (3) is in love with hedgehogs, Henry was adorable! Then we met his friend (the skunk) and boy did we learn so many facts about skunks. There were some facts I had never heard of before. I love the way the facts and questions were featured throughout the book. Loved all of the illustrations and over all the message about coping with sadness was awesome. This is a great read and would be perfect in any home library or school.
Henry helps Shelly learn to deal with her sadness and also helps others learn to be nice to everyone. The text is well-written and the illustrations are really cute. This is a book that kids will be able to relate to easily. The additions of facts, questions and suggestions on how to help a child deal with sadness and other emotions were great!
Talk about teaching children to be emotionally intelligent. This adorable story gives the perfect tool kit to speak with your children about talking your emotions and not letting them drive you. It also talks about self love and friendship. Kudos!
This book has great characters and story. Henry shows the reader why it’s important to treat people well and also to love yourself. Both lessons are needed with children and adults. I would recommend this book to schools and parents alike.
This book is definitely great for the time we're living in. Being different and having the courage to love self when others choose to hate is what this book is about. I loved the facts and questions at the bottom of the pages.
