Great Read Aloud! Great Mentor Text!

Updated: Sep 21, 2020


Our Friend Hedgehog: The Story of Us by Lauren Castillo Early Readers Chapter Book 110 pages © 2020


This is one of those books that you have to finish the entire story in one sitting. It has everything! Great word choice. Plot twists. Suspense. Varied sentence structure. Descriptive language and much more. Teachers can use this title for character development, prediction, craft analysis, and more. Illustrations and limited text on each page. This is an absolute gem of a title!


This is a great choice for students who are transitioning into chapter books. There is limited text on each page and lots of illustrations to keep the reader engaged. The book is 110 pages so the reader must have the reading stamina to get through that many pages. Younger students may need an adult to help them with a few words.
