Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
There is a good deal of information about groundhogs packed into this picture book. And though groundhogs may not be a subject that naturally draws the attention of a preschooler the way alligators or dinosaurs do, the author's placement of this groundhog in a typical suburban backyard will raise the curiosity of many children. The reader follows Groundhog through his day, eating clover, evading the family dog and digging a new burrow. Along the way, we learn how groundhogs defend themselves against much larger and more agile animals, about the sophistication of their burrows, and about their daily habits. Higgins Bond's illustrations are realistic yet expressive, with vivid, saturated colors. Young nature lovers are sure to enjoy this book, which is in the "Smithsonian's Backyard" series. 2003, Soundprints/Trudy Corporation, Ages 4 to 7.
