The other week Wyatt and I were reading a slew of snow books. Then that giant snow storm hit the East Coast and I decided enough snow! We were moving on - at least temporarily.
Thinking spring, I scoured the library for as many groundhog day books as I could. Or before Wyatt decided he was done with the library.
Most of the ones I picked up were super cute!
Groundhog's Day Off by Robb Pearlman: No one likes to be taken advantage of, and in this book, Groundhog is tired of feeling like people only are interested in his weather prediction, but not him. So he takes off, leaving a mess in his wake. I thought this one was pretty fun.
Go To Sleep, Groundhog by Judy Cox: This one was my favorite, and Wyatt seemed to really enjoy the illustrations! Groundhog can't sleep, and his insomnia allows him to experience the fall and winter holidays he usually misses. Adorable, with rich colors. A keeper!
Groundhog Stays Up Late by Margery Cuyler: In this one, Groundhog is a bit of a brat. This book is a bit like the ant and the grasshopper, and Groundhog is the grasshopper, playing when he should be getting ready for winter. Will he learn his lesson?
Groundhog's Dilemma by Kristen Remanar: This one is cute, but it made me think of politics! Lol. Maybe because it is an election year. Groundhog is full of false promises to get people to like him and give him things, like a spot on the baseball team and yummy desserts. He has to come clean in the end though - it can only be spring or winter, not both!
Gregory's Shadow by Don Freeman: The author of Corduroy! Apparently this was his last book. It was cute - an oldie but goodie!
So what is your prediction? Will the groundhog see his shadow? Are we in for more winter or is spring around the corner?
