If you are looking for a great book with a different take on Groundhogs Day, then Brownie Groundhog and the February Fox is the book for you. It is a story about a groundhog who gets up February 2nd to see if spring will be soon arriving (don't we all wish). Instead, she sees her shadow, no signs of spring, and a hungry fox. Instead of letting the fox eat her, she distracts and delays him repeatedly. Finally, she shares some cinnamon toast and cocoa. The fox ends up not eating the groundhog and makes a new friend instead.
This story is just long enough to keep my kids attention. Madison can easily read this book and the illustrations are phenomenal. I love that it isn't a story they've heard before, and my kids were worried that the groundhog was going to be eaten.
If you are looking for a new book for your library, I have to recommend Brownie Groundhog and the February Fox!
