Thank you for visiting us!

In solidarity with all Ukrainian families, we created this website with a wide selection of children’s ebooks and entertainment to help parents reduce children’s stress in these unprecedented times. Many of you now live in Ukraine, while others are in different parts of the world. But wherever you are, you will be able to use this site.

Stories with Clever Hedgehog is a safe, digital space of picture books, folktales, and storybooks in Ukrainian (and in English) for children from birth to about 10 years of age.

This website allows you to read books with your children. If your children are independent readers, then they can read on their own, too. You will also find many games, fun facts, childish news, music and art, funny contests, and many more activities to explore.

We hope you will visit the Clever Hedgehog often and tell your friends about us.
