About the Author:

Gail Gibbons "has taught more preschoolers and early readers about the world than any other children's writer-illustrator," according to the Washington Post. Winner of the 2010 Regina Award, she has written and illustrated more than fifty books for Holiday House. She lives in Corinth, Vermont.

From Booklist:

When you come right down to it, Groundhog Day isn't much of a holiday, so it's no surprise that this book needed a little more than just history and customs to make it viable. Gibbons presents the basics, but she also offers information on groundhogs to bolster the text. The book begins with several pictures of a groundhog peeking out of its burrow as text explains shadows and the old adage about six more weeks of winter. There's also a substantial piece about how, in times past, hibernating animals were watched for clues about the weather. Less successful is vaguely worded information; for example, this description of spring festivals: "about 1,500 years ago, people in Europe began lighting candles in the early spring for a new religious celebration." Gibbons' familiar artwork extends the text, especially in a two-page spread that offers an underground view of a groundhog's multichamber burrow. A brief look at how the holiday is celebrated and a page of additional facts conclude the book. Ilene Cooper
