Perfect Picture Book Friday – Happy Groundhog Day!


It’s Groundhog Day!

And you know what that means!!! 🙂

Punxsutawney Phyllis herself will be up and at ’em as soon as it’s light to make her prediction about whether we’ll have 6 more weeks of winter or an early spring!  (Fingers, toes, eyes, paws, etc. crossed for the latter! 🙂 )

As it happens, however, Phyllis and I are off to an all-day school visit the second she’s made her prediction, so you’ll have to wait to find out what she says!  And we are not here to participate actively in PPBF…

…so at the risk of tooting our own horn, Phyllis and I would like to direct you to Beth Stilborn’s Perfect Picture Book blog post on Punxsutawney Phyllis for today’s Perfect Picture Book.


We hope you will read Beth’s post and then enjoy our book with all your friends and relations, human and groundhog!

Also, Phyllis being Phyllis, she would love fan mail in the comments, so feel free to write to her 🙂

I’m skipping most of the PPBF categories because they’re on Beth’s post, just making sure everyone sees the accompanying resources!

Links To Resources: coloring pages and activities (scroll down to Punxsutawney Phyllis to make your selection); classroom guides (scroll down to Punxsutawney Phyllis to make your selection); Groundhog Day Cupcakes

Why I Like This Book: I think I’m probably too biased to answer that question 🙂  See what Beth has to say 🙂

I hope you enjoy it as much as Phyllis and I do 🙂

Before we go, Groundhog Day Cupcakes, anyone???!!!

Happy Groundhog Day, enjoy the cupcakes, and have a wonderful weekend, everyone!!! 🙂

    Dear Phyllis,
    Please don’t see your shadow today! It has been a tough winter already. Hope you can convince your Mom to share one of those delicious cupcakes with you. I am so glad they let you take over the joab and eagerly await pronouncement tomorrow. Love, Maria

    Wow! Thank you so much for sharing my post! Looks as though Phyllis will see her shadow here — and as I have said since I was a child, “ONLY six more weeks of winter? YAY!” (Around here, winter usually lasts longer than that.) Susanna, please give Phyllis a hug for me. Phyllis, please give Susanna a hug for me. Happy Phyllis Day!

    Phyllis! Phyllis! Phyllis! Six more weeks of winter! Oh, my. For Californians, that means we get more rain. OK, we’ll take it, but please no mud slides. And as the for the rest of the country? Batten down the hatches! Grab some hot cocoa and a pile of books. Cheers!

    Happy Groundhog Day, Susanna and Phyllis. I’m hoping you have better days weatherwise although please keep the winter a little longer so we keep our summer a little longer. Although it’s raining somewhat now. We have been enjoying the hottest summer ever! Enjoy your day Phyllis.
