The Groundhog Day Book of Facts and Fun by Wendie C. OldSummary
The Groundhog Day Book is a book about the groundhog, its life, eating habits, hibernation, burrows, and about the traditions that surround it. It’s a colorful, non-fiction book that clearly explains what a ground is, what it does, how it makes its home, how it survives winter, and many other interesting facts about groundhogs. It also explains the tradition of looking for the groundhog’s shadow on February 2ND. The book uses language that would be used by older kids, but always stops to explain possibly confusing words for younger children. It’s full of illustrations that add to the fun of the book. It has simple graphs and small picture jokes on every other page. The last chapter encourages a child to have fun with this information and have a Groundhog Day party. I like this book because it gives information in a fun and interactive way so that kids are interesting in learning.
