|PreSchool-Grade 2–Who wants to spend all winter sleeping? Groundhog would rather spend his autumn days playing with the other woodland animals than preparing for winter. While his disapproving friends retreat to their warm and cozy burrows, he remains awake. Once the snow begins to fly, he plays in it alone, building snowmen and forts, but soon becomes hungry and cold. In early January during a brief thaw, the mischievous animal tricks the other forest inhabitants into believing that spring has arrived early and they celebrate with a wonderful feast. When his disgruntled companions discover the ruse, they resolve to get back at him, and, because of their trickery, he ends up sleeping through spring. The following winter, an unrepentant Groundhog stays up late once again. Crisp gouache paintings show the cuddly animals standing upright, and the energetic woodchuck proudly sports a red scarf and mittens. The colors and textures of the changing seasons are beautifully portrayed|
Foreign Customer Review / 国外客户评价:
|This Groundhog would rather play than prepare for Winter or hibernate. So while all of his animal friends nestled into their beds, he played in the snow. But it was a lonely business, entertaining himself; and besides, he was hungry and cold. After his sleepy friends rebuffed him, Groundhog decided to declare an early Spring so that everyone would wake up and eat. The animals were initially happy about the announcement -- until snow began to fall and the calendar revealed the date to be January 2nd, not February 2nd. His friends wanted to punish Groundhog, but he had finally returned to his burrow and was fast asleep. When he woke up a month later, he saw a strange shadow and thought there would still be six more weeks of Winter. Little did he know that his friends had tricked him by painting the shadow on the ground. They enjoyed the early Spring days while Groundhog went back to sleep.
This mildly amusing story is accompanied by realistic and playful illustrations. Seasonal banners that extend across some double-pages add to young reader interest and keep the storyline moving. See Judy Cox's "Go to Sleep, Groundhog," for a similar but different treatment.|
