It's the second day of February.
Snow covers the field and the wind blows cold, but the Groundhog has a job to do. Will spring be early? Or will spring be late? When the Groundhog doesn't see his shadow, it's clear spring will be here soon. But wait! Is that a red flower sticking through the snow? "Spring is here now!" is the best prediction the Groundhog has ever made! All the Groundhog's friends rejoice . . . except one. Will one grouch turn spring back into winter? First published in 1959, this humorous tale from the creator of Harold and the Purple Crayon reminds us that sometimes it doesn't matter what you're celebrating as much as who you're celebrating with.
