Children's LiteratureHarry and Emily are finishing dinner when Harry remarks that the next day is Groundhog Day and that saying the word groundhog will bring good luck all year. Emily does not believe that or the story of the groundhog seeing its shadow as the bellwether of more winter weather. Emily decides that she wants it to be spring, so she tries to find a groundhog. First they have to find out what a groundhog looks like and a bit about its habitat. Once they learn that groundhogs live in holes outside, they decide to dig a few holes and put out some tempting snacks in the hope of luring one into their yard. They get plenty of squirrels and birds, but it does not look like any groundhog is going to appear. Never fear, Harry and Emily do get their wish and spring is just around the corner.
