Kindergarten-Grade 3–It is February 3 and Groundhog has decided that his holiday should last longer than one day. While telling the facts about his species to crow, squirrel, and a hog reporter, he reveals that groundhogs can move about seven hundred pounds of dirt and rocks in one day, and that they are clever builders of burrows, they run, climb trees, and are studied by scientists. Convinced of the creature's talents, the reporter declares, You're the Hog! Operation Groundhog will start immediately. The world will know the Hog truth. The humorous text is completed by Brunkus's finely executed, animated, watercolor-and-colored-pencil drawings.–Rebecca Sheridan, Easttown Library & Information Center, Berwyn, PA

K-Gr. 2. Swallow presents quite a bit of information about groundhogs in an entertaining story: as a sarcastic squirrel and crow look on and make snide remarks, a bespectacled young groundhog interviews a bigger, presumably older one, who isn't shy about enumerating his talents. Along the way, kids will learn, among other things, that woodchuck is another word for groundhog, that groundhogs are related to squirrels, and that they hibernate during the winter. Brunkus' humorous, colorful illustrations portray the portly braggart and his companions with wry, apt expressions on their faces, conveying their annoyance, and, despite themselves, their curiosity. Pair this with Margery Cuyler's Groundhog Stays Up Late ( 2005) for a festive Groundhog Day storytime. Diane Foote

This is a fantastic story to use with 2nd grade and beyond, but I recommend something less complex (like Pat Miller's Substitute Groundhog) for younger kids.
