Helping Children Cope

Many children in Ukraine and other countries are in need of helpful resources to grow, learn, and play during difficult times. Clever Hedgehog’s library bookshelfHelping Children Cope” is full of storybooks for young children who are learning to cope with good and bad experiences in their childhood.

Clever Hedgehog hopes that these storybooks encourage children and teach them that they can grow through difficulties.
