Groundhog Day Books for Kids

Groundhog Day – sure, it may all feel a little silly, but around here, we kind of like having something smack-dab in the middle of winter to enjoy together.

Some years, we’ve read these books the night before – just before bedtime to build some anticipation for the morning. That’s fun, too!

My top pick is Groundhog Day by Gail Gibbons. Her books are so informative – packing lots of great information into kid-friendly reads.

Next up is this sweet read by Don Freeman – the author of Corduroy. Gregory’s Shadow is a fictional read about Gregory and his shadow. My little girls were giggling at this one this year.

Are you familiar with Brownie Groundhog? This is a great time of year to read Brownie Groundhog and the February Fox and Brownie Groundhog and the Wintry Surprise.

The illustrations in these books are so sweet, and the storylines will make your elementary kiddos laugh.

I found this newest addition to our little collection of Groundhog Books at the consignment shop: Who Will See Their Shadows This Year?, and I think this is a cute little read for younger kids.

You may find that your library has other sweet titles you want to check out for Groundhog Day, and if you don’t already own these, maybe check their catalog for these titles.
