Children's LiteratureHave you ever wondered why we celebrate Groundhog Day? After all, just where did the idea come from that a little old groundhog, asleep underground all winter, would suddenly wake up every year on February 2nd and accurately predict whether spring will come early or late? And why do people all over the globe take such an interest in it? This informative book clues us in to the history and the legends that surround Groundhog Day and the most famous weather-predicting groundhog of them all, Punxsutawney Phil. To top it off, a science lesson on the seasons, background on groundhogs and their hibernating habits, silly riddles, and fun suggestions on how to celebrate this annual event are all provided along with fun and lively illustrations. From A to Z, as the title suggests, you will be sure to get all the facts and fun you could ever imagine about this well-known but often misunderstood holiday. 2004, Albert Whitman and Company, Ages 7 up.
