Porcupines And The Coldest Winter Ever

Author Unknown

It was the coldest winter ever, and many animals died because of the cold. The porcupines, realizing the situation, decided to group together.

    This was such a tender story. Porcupines trying to keep warm bundled up together but pricking each other. Deciding to stay together in all areas of life would certainly make the world better. Great lesson in this story.
