The story behind Groundhog Day

Image of item
Six more weeks of winter! That's what people shout each year on February 2nd if the famous groundhog in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, sees his shadow. An animal might seem like a strange and unreliable way to predict the weather, but people have been consulting critters on this for hundreds of years. With age-appropriate text, this book explores the history of Groundhog Day from its origins as a pagan celebration to today. Full-color images provide an up-close look at these furry little weather predictors. Readers might hope for a sunny start to February and an early start to spring, but what will the groundhog say?
