Back of Book:
Moose is having a Valentine’s Day party, and all his friends are so excited! Everyone except Groundhog, that is. If Groundhog sees his shadow outside, he’ll hide in his hole for six more weeks and miss the party!
Determined to help their friend join them, Moose, Squirrel, Bunny, and Porcupine put their heads together and come up with a plan. But will it be enough to get Groundhog out to play?
I love that Groundhug Day combines Groundhog and Valentines Day into one book. The story is enduring and follows a group of friends as they work together to ensure that Groundhog does not feel left out of the Valentines party. The story also does a beautiful job of showing readers how they can overcome their fears. Each of Groundhogs friends comes up with a different way to show him that shadows are nothing to fear. The illustrations are a blend of bright colors and darker landscapes. The contrast creates a beautiful story. This is a perfect book for Groundhog Day or Valentines Day.
