Groundhog Day 2014

groundhogdaybookToday Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, predicting 6 more weeks of winter.

How does Phil know what to do?  How does he gain his weather-predicting skills?  Perhaps he attended Groundhog Weather School as presented by Joan Holub and illustrated by Kristin Sorra.

This clever picture book is packed full of interesting facts about groundhogs, weather, shadows, and seasons.  There is a spread on famous ‘Furry Hognosticators,’ like Punxsutawney Phil, from various parts of the United States.  A final page includes more information about how Groundhog Day began.

Groundhog Weather School presents all this information in a fun, colorful format – a graphic novel/comic book style – that gives information without seeming to overload the reader.  Groundhog Weather School is an excellent choice to share with children – even into the upper grade school years due to its format and information.
