#Review: Geoffrey Groundhog Predicts The Weather by Bruce Koscielniak #Kidsbooks #GroundhogDay
Geoffrey Groundhog has become a local celebrity for successfully predicting how long winter will last. Everyone awaits his prediction each February 2, when he emerges from his burrow to look for his shadow. But Geoffrey's fame has grown out of control - and so has the commotion surrounding his burrow! With television lights and cameras crowding him, he can't even see the ground, much less his shadow. How will he make his spring prediction? How will anyone know if they should wax their surfboards or their skis?
Oh how we wait for the groundhog to predict the weather! We need to know, don't we? This adorable book features Geoffrey the groundhog who has become famous in his town of other animals. One day though, he oversleeps and all chaos happens.
I loved how the author made Geoffrey an instant celebrity complete with posters, signs, TV crews, and even the clothes he wears. Apparently being a famous celebrity once a year is hard work and certainly must be done right.
The author illustrated this book in cartoon-ish style with muted watercolors.
This book was a fun little twist on the crazy annual tradition. What is even better is how he ends up predicting the weather at the end. I will leave that for you to discover.
Awesome book that gets 4 stars from me.
