Published in collaboration with the National Trust, How to Help a Hedgehog and Protect a Polar Bear is a fantastic addition to any child’s library as it’s full to the brim with simple ideas to help endangered animals and make the world a better place too.


The book begins with a guide to the different types of habitats that can be found before taking each individual one and detailing not only what wildlife lives there (with fantastic facts and size and weight keys to make it even easier) but most importantly how we can help. Advice ranges from staying on paths when walking in the countryside to recycling, saving water and how children can speak out and work together to solve the problems we have created!


On top of this, the illustrations are bold, beautiful and give a really high quality finish to an already high quality product.


Perfect for all ages from 5 year olds to 105 years old, this is one not just for school but a perfect home addition as well.



You can order How to Help a Hedgehog and Protect a Polar Bear online or from your local bookshop or library.
