Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
It is Groundhog Day, and Dad takes his son to a celebratory event. Will the groundhog see his shadow? Three men in overcoats and top hats are gathered around the groundhog enclosure. A marching band provides a drumbeat and some fun. The doors open, and the groundhog appears. One of the men lifts him up. There is no shadow. Spring is on the way. Things will soon be green. The boy and his dad stop at a flower shop and buy Mother a pretty plant. The dragon is present throughout the book, but he is not acknowledged until the final scene, in which the boy speaks directly to him. Large, colorful illustrations offer clues for reading the words in the story. Hillert includes a note to caregivers about using the book and two pages for reading reinforcement with phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and text comprehension. An additional page provides a word list. Part of the "Dear Dragon" series. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
