Learn about Hedgehogs and Denmark

This Where in the World Activity was inspired by Jan Brett's The Hat. To learn more about the book and see all our The Hat activities, click here


Hedgehogs are fascinating creatures that I have to confess I really knew very little about until recently. Reading The Hat and other Jan Brett books (several feature hedgehogs, like Hedgie's Surprise ) made me very eager to know more about the little critters. If you and your reader are curious too, look no further than the National Geographic Kids website. The following link is the perfect Hedgehog Primer, featuring photos and facts, video, sound, and maps of were they live in the world.

Where in the World?

The Hat takes place in Denmark. Using a globe or world map, show your young reader where Lisa, Hedgie, and all the other animals live.
