Children’s Books to Celebrate Groundhog Day

Your child asks you, “What’s Groundhog Day?” That’s a totally reasonable question. After all, it’s not easy for a young child to understand why Phil is toted out in the middle of his winter rest just to look at his shadow (or not). Help your little learner to better understand this holiday with a few children’s books on the subject. If you’re not sure where to begin, check out these easy reads.

Groundhog Day! By Gail Gibbons: This illustrated tale of the holiday gives kids a beginning background to who Punxsutawney Phil is and why we celebrate Groundhog Day (for children in kindergarten to early elementary school).

Groundhog Weather School: Fun Facts About Weather and Groundhogs by Joan Holub and Kristin Sorra: Kids can learn about the holiday in a totally creative way. This book provides plenty of information, but in the frame of a sweetly clever story (for children in kindergarten to early elementary school).

Groundhog’s Day Off, by Robb Pearlman and Brett Helquist: In this fictional tale, the groundhog looks to find someone else to fill his spot. It’s humorous, interesting and will get your child smiling (for preschool-aged children).

Groundhug Day, by Anne Marie Pace and Christopher Denise: Combine Valentine’s Day and Groundhog Day with this fun children’s book (for children in preschool through kindergarten).
