Happy Groundhog Day! February 2, 2010

Posted by Donna in Fiction, New Books, Thoughtful Ramblings.


How could you not like this adorable creature? Today, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow and predicts 6 more weeks of winter while Buckeye Chuck did not see his shadow which means an early spring. Ah….who should we believe? If you check out the website of The Committee for the Commercialization of Groundhog Day, there are over 30 fairly famous furry prognosticators around the United States and Canada. I’m going with the groundhog that is predicting an early spring!

I did a keyword search on Amazon.com for groundhogs and came up with 504 books! I may have close to that number myself since I love to celebrate Groundhog Day. (When I retire, I’m planning to attend the big celebration that is held every year in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania.)  The newest one that I added to my collection is:

Groundhog Weather School by Joan Holub. Professor Groundhog opens a school for groundhogs so that they can learn how to predict the weather. It’s delightful…just like the adorable groundhog!

Enjoy the day and think Spring! Happy Reading!   ~Donna
