About the Book
Every February 2, people all across the country wonder about the groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil. Will he see his shadow on that day or won't he? Will spring come early or late? Here is information about Groundhog Day, its origins, and the animal at the center of this delightful annual event.

“Gail Gibbons has taught more preschoolers and early readers about the world than any other children’s writer-illustrator."—The Washington Post
