Poor Groundhog just can't sleep. He tosses. He turns. Finally, he gets out of bed and goes exploring. Outside his burrow he finds amazing sights he has never seen before: glowing jack-o'-lanterns, gobbling turkeys, and sparkling holiday lights. But shouldn't Groundhog be in bed? With no sleep how will he be able to get up for his big day?

PreSchool-Grade 2--At last, Groundhog Day finally has an irresistible story to call its own. Groundhog goes to sleep on Columbus Day as usual, setting his alarm clock for February 2, but he keeps tossing and turning. He checks the clock and gets up at half-past October, half-past November, and then half-past December. Each time, he sees the trappings of holidays that he had always slept through before. Halloween Witch, Turkey, and Santa each take a turn tucking him back into bed, reading him a seasonal story, and giving him a holiday treat. Naturally, when February 2 rolls around, Groundhog is finally sound asleep, but he wakes up long enough to go up to the surface and see his shadow. An afterword describes the development of the Groundhog Day superstition. The text flows smoothly, and Cox makes effective use of repetition. Meisel's vibrant acrylic-and-gouache illustrations will help make this a favorite in storytimes.--Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Maryland School for the Deaf, Columbia
