The Children’s Book Review | January 1, 2011

The new year is upon us and Groundhog Day is closing-in. Just in time, we want to share Groundhog Weather School, by Joan Holub!

Reading Level: Ages 4-8

Hardcover: 32 pages

Book overview: Professor Groundhog keeps getting the weather forecast wrong! His solution? He opens a school to train groundhogs to help him accurately forecast the weather each February. With funny asides and a comic-style approach, this fact-filled, funny story is a fresh look at Groundhog Day!

Groundhog Weather School is a Jr. Literary Guild selection, a Scholastic book club selection, and a Buyer’s Pick in Ingram’s magazine.

Kirkus Reviews says it’s: “…a clever look at the weather…good fun that will subtly teach in between laughs.”

Booklist calls it “clever,” “amusing,” and “inviting,” and says: “…the approach is so varied and so often witty that children will absorb the facts effortlessly.”

A hardcover picture book published by Putnam.
