Groundhog Weather School

Groundhog Weather School
By Joan Holub
G.P Putnam's Sons, 2009. Unpaged. Picture book.

Groundhogs decide to run a training school in order to more accurately predict the weather. The students learn all kinds of useful information, such as how to build a better burrow, facts about natural weather prediction, and statistics about other famous weather-predicting animals. In the end, the groundhogs all work together to average their results for the most accurate prediction ever--or is it?

This book is filled with information about Groundhog's Day and relative facts and tidbits. The setup and illustrations make it particularly appealing with the use of fun diagrams, panels, and word bubbles. This is a great, entertaining way to learn more about weather and predictions!
