It's February 2 and all the animals are tired of winter. But why should the groundhog always be famous for seeing his shadow? Who else wants to try? A chicken? A polar bear? A camel?

None of those seems quite right. So who will see their shadows this year?

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—Why should the groundhog get all the attention? Several animals decide to try affecting the weather with their own shadows, with varying results: the camel's causes a sandstorm, the buffalo's makes sleet, and the peacock's a tornado. The racket wakes the groundhog, who, seeing no shadow, brings the spring. Accompanied by hyper-cartoonish color illustrations, the one-note joke spins out for far too long, though the book might be useful to start classroom discussions about why the animals pictured (ranging from a chicken to a polar bear) would not live in the same habitat.—Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Carroll County Public Library, MD
