RedReviewStarGr K-2—Groundhog usually goes to sleep on Columbus Day and wakes up on February 2, but this year he just can't seem to fall asleep. Instead of tossing and turning he decides to climb out of his den and explore. To his surprise October, November, and December are full of exciting things he's never seen before. Groundhog sees and hears the sights and sounds of the holidays, before finally falling asleep and waking up right on time for his shadow-seeing (or not?) duties. This strikes the perfect balance between heart-warming, funny, and clever. Children will love hearing about Groundhog's adventure, which Susie Berneis's narration brings to life. Additional sound effects such as turkeys gobbling will have kids smiling and wanting to listen again.
VERDICT This is a must-have audiobook for a Groundhog Day storytime.
