Mr. Groundhog wants the day off and doesn't want to do Ground Hogs Day anymore. He is tired of people getting mad at him, when they see his shadow and blame him for six more weeks of winter. He then tries to get the other forest animals to take his job from him. Instead they help him get ready for the day. The book has beautiful, colorful illustrations, but the story line is a bit boring. Not my favorite children's book ever.
Mr. Groundhog is tired of seeing his shadow every Groundhog's Day. He is tired of everyone being mad at him for six more weeks of winter. So, he decides to ask all his friends...squirrel, raccoon, turtle, and rabbit to fill in for him. Of course they can't, but they all give him something that will make his job a little easier.

Used for "It's Groundhog Day!" Story Time: February, 2012.

A very cute book about mr. Groundhog who decided he wanted to take off for groundhog's day. He didn't want to disappoint everyone if he didn't see his shadow do he tried to get other animals to take his place.
Ordered for collection but would not use for storytime. I was disappointed by the lack of thought in the design. The text was disappointing, both literally and figuratively. Sweet storyline, blandly executed.
Beautiful illustrations
