Help! A Story of Friendship by Holly Keller
One morning hedgehog finds mouse hiding. When hedgehog asks mouse, mouse explains that skunk told him that snakes are very dangerous to mice. Hedgehog tries to explain to mouse that their friend Snake would never hurt him. Mouse is still a little preoccupied thinking about Snake based on what he was told by skunk, and falls into a hole. All the friends try to help him out of the hole but nothing seems to work. Then snake shows up and wants to help his friend escape. Hedgehog is afraid if snake does try to help, mouse will get scared. Snake very creatively comes up with a way to help mouse out, without telling mouse.
Great book to use to discuss gossiping and friendship.
