Written to help children better understand homelessness, Herbie the Homeless Hedgehogfollows our hero as he and his mother find themselves unable to pay rent, and must leave the only home Herbie has ever known.

Unsure of what to do, our young family decides to take advantage of the hope offered in the Warm Nights Hypothermia Shelter Program.

Going into the Warm Nights Shelter is frightening for both of them, but they soon realize that many of Herbie’s friends – including Pansy Peacock and Baxter Beagle – are in the same type of situation. Relying on each other, their faith and the new friends they make they soon realize that sometimes everyone needs a helping hand.

Written by CCSI Development Coordinator Bill Leary, and charmingly illustrated by artists Catherine and Margaret Freed, Herbie the Homeless Hedgehog is sure to be a new favorite for your children and an excellent educational tool for parents, grandparents, teachers and clergy members to teach compassion, empathy and the power and joy of helping others!
