On Order



This funny Groundhog's Day tale is the newest in Jerry Pallotta's holiday picture-book series.

It is February 2nd and all the animals are tired of winter. But why should the groundhog always be famous for seeing his shadow? Who else wants to try? A chicken? A polar bear? A camel?

None of those seems quite right. So who will see their shadows this year?

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-Why should the groundhog get all the attention? Several animals decide to try affecting the weather with their own shadows, with varying results: the camel's causes a sandstorm, the buffalo's makes sleet, and the peacock's a tornado. The racket wakes the groundhog, who, seeing no shadow, brings the spring. Accompanied by hyper-cartoonish color illustrations, the one-note joke spins out for far too long, though the book might be useful to start classroom discussions about why the animals pictured (ranging from a chicken to a polar bear) would not live in the same habitat.-Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Carroll County Public Library, MD (c) Copyright 2013.
