I received a copy of “Groundhug ” ($17.99 value) in exchange for this promotion. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
GROUNDHUG DAY is utterly heartwarming and sure to be a hit, whether readers are bursting for spring or snuggling up for six more weeks of winter. The festive combination of Valentine’s Day and Groundhog Day makes this picture book a sweet standout for holiday reading.
Moose is having a Valentine’s Day party, and all his friends are so excited! Everyone except Groundhog, that is. If Groundhog sees his shadow outside, he’ll hide in his hole for six more weeks and miss the party! Determined to help their friend join them, Moose, Squirrel, Bunny, and Porcupine put their heads together and come up with a plan. But will it be enough to get Groundhog out to play? This story celebrates friends who look out for each other through thick and thin and all year round.
This fun colorful picture book gets us all in gear for Groundhog Day and also Valentine’s Day. We’ve all heard of Groundhog Day, but do we really know what the Groundhog is really up to and doing on this special day on the calendar? Join Moose, Porcupine, Squirrel and Bunny as they help Groundhog face a fear that is all too common. Young readers will also enjoy the teamwork of this gang as they work together to help plan a party and help their friend in need.
Groundhug Day can be purchased at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and anywhere children’s books are sold. Great gift for those ages 3-5 (grades Preschool – Kindergarten).
