    One thought on “Will Spring Be Early? Or Will Spring Be Late? (Harper Trophy Book)”

    1. A fun children's book about some fuzzy thinking animals for a cold February day, by the author of the Harold books. Will definitely be sharing with my grandchildren

    2. This story is about a groundhog. The groundhog has a very important job, and it is to decide whether spring will be early or late. The groundhog gets out of his burrow and he doesn’t see his shadow, which means that Spring will be early. He decides to go tell his friends that spring will be early, he sees a flower standing up in the snow as if it had bloomed. The groundhog gets super excited and runs through the forest yelling, “Spring is here!!” Most of the animals were excited, but when [...]

    3. I love Crockett Johnson. His illustrations are clean and clear. He uses compelling vocabulary and well placed adjectives. And his story is delightful. A great pick for a Groundhog Day read aloud.

    4. Fun, happy book about Groundhog's day.Story: On February 2nd, the groundhog wakes up. Depending on whether or not he sees his shadow, he will know whether spring will be early or if there will be a long winter. We meet many forest creatures in this book, including a grumpy pig, and a fun twist at the end makes this book a worthy readCE: This book is long at 48 pages but there is not much text, the font is large, and the pictures take up most of the page. Could easily be read in a short time or i [...]

    5. This is the story of a groundhog on Groundhog Day who is searching for signs of spring. While it has great pictures and the ending is funny, it is a bit boring and long. It is not one I would use in storytime again.

    6. Groundhog peeps out of his hole to make his yearly prediction about the arrival of spring. He doesn't see his shadow so he decides spring will be early, but even groundhog is surprised to see a flower already in bloom. He starts announcing to all the animals that spring will not only be early, it is already here. Grumpy Pig has a different prediction to make, however.A humorous Groundhog Day tale that has aged well.

    7. I've read this twice and I don't like the ending. The artwork is great, but the plot is sort of thin, especially for how long the story is. My three-year-old seems to enjoy looking at the pictures, but the story has not made any particular impression on either of us.

    8. Great little book about the groundhog and the question, "Will spring be early? or will spring be late?" Great to read in February!!
