Happy Groundhog Day!

Happy Groundhog Day!

Gail Gibbons is one of my favorite authors.  Students love her illustrations and all the information she writes about in her books.  Read and listen!

Watch this video of Groundhog Day by Gail Gibbons.

Little Lila Groundhog doesn't want to go to sleep for the winter.  Her uncle tells her that if she goes to sleep, she can be the first one to wake up in spring...and she will discover a big secret!  She learns all about her shadow and hibernation.  This is a delightful book for primary readers... a great read aloud.  Sweet illustrations invite the children into the groundhog's household.  Other winter animals happen upon the pages.  Great book  for story time!
