Did you know that groundhogs do a lot more than come out of their burrows on Groundhog’s Day to look for their shadows? In fact, their burrows are very complex and comfortable with lots of rooms. A pompous plump groundhog is interviewed by an admiring young groundhog in Groundhog Gets a Say, while his skeptical squirrel and crow friends make sarcastic remarks throughout the interview.  They learn lots of surprising facts such as groundhogs can move 700 pounds of dirt climb trees and swim. Most importantly they also come out of hibernation on Groundhog Day for a “snack and a date with a mate.” Enjoy this clever tale of a groundhog with very good self esteem.  (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2007-2008)
