The images by Lieve Snellings are beautiful and the story rolls along. It is very wordy and there are a lot of ideas in the mix, such as a running commentary on an ice hockey game which goes off in another direction but adds to the reader’s knowledge about Canada.
It would be helpful if the author put in the blurb the age group at which he is aiming. Small children, under three, would love the illustrations but at that age they don’t like too many words before you can turn the page. Older children would like the story and learn about nature.
A delightful tale for children.
I found the tale of Eufrazie, the squirrel hairdresser, particularly amusing. Margot enlightens us with photos of the hairdos Eufrazie creates for all the animals who are cheering for the Canadian women in the World Hockey Game. I won't reveal the winner, but as the sisters get ready to depart for Belgium, they are already looking forward to more adventures with Margot and her animal friends next year.
This beautiful book can be used as an introduction to nature for younger children. There is quite a bit of interesting information about the wildlife of Quebec. As such, the book is a good beginning reader that will sustain interest due to the nice blend of fiction and nonfiction. Children can easily empathize with Margot and her wildlife friends. I would particularly recommend it for children in the six to nine age bracket.
I liked that the story was told from the groundhog's perspective, as most children love stories that revolved around animals as main characters, and the groundhog was definitely a unique choice.
A lot of interesting facts about groundhogs and other related animals were presented in this book, and I enjoyed the whimsical nature in which this story was told. I can picture reading a book like this to a Kindergarten or Preschool class. It contains just enough information to tell the story, without bogging down little readers with too much detail.
I will be reading more by this author.
Marie and her sister Lowieske are from Belgium and, like me, did not know what a woodchuck was prior to their meeting with Margot. The images of the groundhog wearing glasses etc were amusing and again this would appeal to children. I found the text a little hard to read but that is an easy thing to remedy particularly if I am reading the story to young children, who are mostly interested in the images and how I deliver the story.
I bought this book on recommendation and enjoyed it.
This is delightful little story and nature photography book all in one. I can see using this book in homeschool as a way to introduce children to the animals in their world.
Inside, you'll learn about diversity in the animal world and the human world. There's even a little bit of Go Canada! when Margot and friends gather to listen to the Women's Soccer Team play for the World Cup.
The photos are gorgeous in their own right. This book inspired another book by the author which is all about Woodchucks.
Here's something I learned: Groundhogs are also known as WoodChucks. Here I thought they were two different animals. ^_^
