Moose is planning a party with the help of his forest friends. They realize that Groundhog will not be able to be there if he sees his shadow and goes back into his den for six more weeks. They try to figure out how to stop Groundhog from seeing his shadow. When Groundhog does see his shadow, the forest friends spend the day showing him how much fun shadows can be, making shadow puppets and silhouettes. Groundhog must go back into his den, but not without some Groundhog Day hugs.
I really liked Groundhug Day because of the story and the illustrations. The illustrations were funny, and I loved how the forest friends were drawn. I really liked how they had different ideas on how to keep Groundhog from seeing his shadow, and I especially liked the blueprint designs for each of their ideas. The story was not what I was expecting. I was thinking it was going to be a Valentine’s story based on the cover, but it is more about Groundhog Day. I think Groundhug Day would be a great book to read in February, when we celebrate both Groundhog Day and Valentine’s Day. I was very excited to see that it has the same author as the Vampirina books.
