Get Ready for Groundhog Day!

Tomorrow is Groundhog Day and many of us are anxiously waiting to find out whether spring will be arriving early this year. For those of you who, like me, do not enjoy the brisk, frigid weather, I’m sure you also have your fingers crossed, hoping that the groundhog does not see his shadow! Legend has it that if the groundhog emerges from his burrow and does not see his shadow, spring will come early. However, if the groundhog does, in fact, see his shadow, he will retreat back into his burrow and winter will continue for six more weeks. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I can stand six more weeks of runny noses and chapped lips!

Fortunately, I do not stand alone in hoping for spring’s early arrival. Check out these two picture books whose characters are also eager for warmer weather!
