We Heard a Soft Sound

This book is intended to help children develop an empathy and enthusiasm for animals as well as respect for the environment. We hope they will learn a little about hedgehogs too.

The series is also designed to teach children the virtues of co-operation and communication, of patience, courage and curiosity alongside a passion for learning. In addition, we hope these books will help foster strong sibling bonds among children, while improving their English language skills in a fun and easy way.

Story: We follow the adventures of two brothers who go exploring in their garden one night.  They hear a rustling noise and after searching very carefully eventually discover a friendly little hedgehog.
Discover what happens next in their garden adventure!
