Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Mrs. Connor starts the class with a poem about Groundhog Day but some of the kids need more explanation. She explains that winter began six weeks ago and will end in another six weeks, so Groundhog Day is right between the two seasons. There is not a groundhog handy, but Chester the hamster will do. Chester does not see his shadow, so Spring cannot be far away. The illustrations are cheery and Chester is a winner. As Mrs. Connor explains Groundhog Day, she walks past calendars adorning the classroom walls, which allows the reader to review the seasons and holidays from December to March. A Level 1 book in the "Ready-To-Read" series, for those just starting to read. 2006, Aladdin/Simon & Schuster, Ages 4 to 6.
—Dr. Judy Rowen
